Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Has a radiator leak, but put fixit in it and it works, sunday made funny noise when starting it but did start. wouldn;t start monday afternoon jumped it and it started, but wouldn't start this morning took starter off and had it checked it is okay, same with battery
Not really following your story.
When you say it will not start, the starter would only affect things if the engine will not crank.
If the engine will not crank, you would need to know if the battery is fully charged and if the starter has power and ground.
If the battery is low, something may be draining it overnight. If the battery is charged, the starter should have power.
The neutral safety switch or key switch could be the problem if the small wire on the starter has no power when the key switch is in the start position.

SOURCE: Van won't start. Only have
I know you had the starter tested but i still thing you have one of two things going on here, first acid damage to the Positive battery cable at the battery, if this is present you will notice the outside of the cable seems swelled yo under the red insulator, this causes low voltage, enough to click the starter solenoid but not enough to turn the starter motor. The other problem is burnt contact inside the starter solenoid itself, this problem will cause a clicking noise from the solenoid with no starter engagement, it very common. The starter solenoid is near the battery just follow the Positive cable from the battery to it, carefully jumper across it, does the starter engage? Here is a picture of the starter solenoid.

Clicking noise usually means a bad connection at the battery terminal. It can also be a bad connection at the starter or solenoid.
Re-clean and tighten battery cables,and if that doesn't do it,re-tighten starter connections.Don't overtighten as copper-bronze studs can break easily.If your Ranger is standard shift (4 or 5-speed), don't get under the car or in front of it without the battery cables disconnectede or the shifter in neutral,as any current you inadvertently send thru the starter can engage it and run you over or knock the vehicle off jackstands or blocks. don-ohio
