Check your electrical connections at the battery and block before banging on anything! Starter is on the right side, even with the flywheel & edge of bellhousing, bolted to the block.

My 1990 chrysler new yorker clicks when i try to start. A little later i try again & starts right up & runs fine. Within a couple days it wont start, only clicks once...repeat

Probably the starter solenoid. Over time the contact points, or plates, inside the solenoid get pitted or worn down. The starter will have to be removed to separate the starter motor and solenoid. Or just get a used starter and try it.

1990 240 wagon won't start. Just makes a single click sound. All the battery lights and everything else works.

check your connections at the battery,clean any corrosion and tighten.(baking soda and warm water works.wear gloves and safety glasses)
if still clicks when trying to start,it probably your solenoid on your starter.
check connections there or while someone trys to start it tap side of starter with a pc of wood or small mallet.

My 2001 chevy silverado 1500 wont start. All i can hear is the fuel pump and the starter clicking.What could it be????

The starter solenoid is the problem. The starter is under the truck on the passenger side. Go under the truck with a hammer and tap the starter a couple of times. Then go and try to start it again. Try this a couple of times and it may solve your problem. If this does not work, then the starter solenoid is out and needs to be replaced or you have a bad connection.

96 chevy blazer just clicks and won't turn over.

Check the main cable going from the battery to starter rellay.
This could be loose or there is corrosion on the connectors, clean this with a spray like WD40...
To find this cable start from the starter motor and work your way back to rellay and then to battery...
If not.
Check with multimeter if the rellay is fine.
else the starter motor is jammed... it will have to be opened and serviced..

Amp meter shows discharge andmotor won't turn over

I would say the starter motor has a problem.Try tapping on the starter motor with a hammer,lightly,while some one tries to start the engine,the amp meter is supposed to discharge when starting,because the stater is drawing amps.The starter needs to be replaced.

96 chevy blazer, just clicks when trying to start, have checked all connections, clicking sound coming from distributor area. Had battery tested and starter checked, both ok.

The only thing you have not checked is a solenoid starter. This culprit is a small cylinder one on top of your starter in the attached images. If you don't want to replace the solenoid starter at 43 bucks, you can rebuild it with a repair kit at 1 buck. I have 2 images here for you reference. Good luck.e24a5ea.jpg 1bf93b8.jpg

Wont start

try tapping the starter with a nice sturdy wrench or hammer but do not hit it hard. I have had that trouble before and all i did was tap the starter and it started up fine. Your starter may be going bad if that is the problem. If that is the problem , simply take it in and have it tested to see whether the armiture is not ingaging or if the celinoid has gone bad. you can raplace both or just buy a new starter. hope this helps.
