Question about Cars & Trucks
Getting a bad rebuilt starter is not unheard of. I got 4 of them in 1 day before I found one that worked. Those were form Checker Auto. After # two I made them check them at the store. Good thing to. Anyway before you remove it for return make sure your battery is puting out a good strong 12Vs. If voltage is low some starter will make only a clicking noise.

Looks like ignition current is not being available to fire the fuel/air injected mixture from the plugs. Remove the cable tip which connects TO any plug. Hold the cable tip to any metal part of the engine block or any part of the body where the metal is exposed(not painted). Ask a friend to turn the ignition for starting the engine(vehicle). If the cable tip produces sparks, then the induction coil is OK, but since you have stated that clicking sound is heard which is actually the relay's which tries to get the induction coil to generate high current required for producing the spark to ignite the fuel & air mixture in each cylinder, thus starting the combustion required to turn the engine & subsequently power. So check the induction, belt tightness and finally the "Distributor"in the sequence as stated and you will be able to diagose which one of the above are malfunctioning............sodeep

You need to inspect the small wire that attaches to the starter. At the end where the ring eyelet is is called fusible link and can burn through, yet still look ok to the eye. Test that wire from the eyelet to an area upstream with an ohm meter for continuity. If bad, simply replace with a new piece of the same AWG size from your local parts house.

FIRST OF ALL YOU HAVE TO DRAIN SOME COOLANT.JUST ENOUGH SO COOLANT WONT FLOW ALL OVER ENGINE.AND COOLANT TO EXPENSIVE ON THE GROUND.TO GET TO THERMOSTAT.YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT CONNECTORS TO MAF EGR IDLE SPEED CONTROL AND IAT SENSOR.. REMOVE THROTTLE AND SHIFT CABLES FROM BRACKET.REMOVE AIR FILTER ASSEMBLY WITH MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR.REMOVE BOTTOM PORTION OF AIR FILTER HOUSING.REMOVE COOLANT HOSES FROM THROTTLE BODY.THEN REMOVE THROTTLE BODY ASSEMBLY.YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT SMALL COOLANT HOSE TOP WATER PUMP.REMOVE SMALL BOLT THAT HOLDS METAL COOLANT LINE TO WATER PUMP.THIS LINE HAS TO BE MOVE JUST ENOUGH SO YOU CAN REMOVE THROTTLE BODY.ONCE THROTTLE BODY OUT THE WAY YOU CAN REMOVE THERMOSTAT.BESURE WHEN YOU PUT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER.REPLACE THROTTLE GASKET AND THE COOLANT HOSES COME OFF THROTTLE BODY BESURE TO USE OLD COOLANT HOSES MEASUREMENTS FOR NEW HOSES MEASUREMENTS MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE CURVE HOSE FOR THROTTLE BODY. DONT TRY TO USE STRAIGHT HOSE IT WILL KINK AND CAUSE NO COOLANT FLOW.WHEN YOU ARE DONE.FILL COOLANT BACK TO CORRECT LEVEL AND BLEED COOLANT SYSTEM.
