Oil pickup tube is likely bent as well, replaced that with the pan?
The click is either because the starter was hit as well or the bent tube is blocking engine rotation. That's on the optimistic side, there could be other damage to the engine or transmission causing this if the starter, battery and power connections check out.

SOURCE: starter needs to be changed on 2006 monte carlo

It sound to me like the starter solenoid is bad. If you can remove the starter yourself you should be able to repair the problem. You will need to remove the terminal cover from the solenoid(be careful because there are wires connected to the underside of those terminals so do not force it.) If you look at the back of the terminals you will probably see that the inside part of the bolt is burned. loosen the nuts that hold the terminals and rotate them so that the burned sections are to the outside then tighten the nuts back. (not too tight because you can break the plastic) You can test the starter before you put it back in the van (after reassembling the starter itself of course) by connecting a set of jumper cables from the battery to the starter. Negative gets clipped to any good metal tab (usually where the mounting bolts go is a good spot) and the Positive cable goes to the big terminal where you first removed the cable from. touch a screwdriver to the smaller terminal and then touch the screw driver shaft to the + CABLE CLIP (not the terminal because you can damage the threads if it arcs) Be sure to have a good grip on the starter because if it works then it will jump. And keep your fingers out of the hole where the gear (Bendix) is because when you bridge the contacts the Bendix will pop forward and will shred your fingertips.

SOURCE: Car wont start, battery i believe is still good

Hi!
This is a good indication that your battery has a bad cell (or more) and needs replacement. Funny you should mention it but the exact same thing happened to me this week, so I had the dealership check the battery (as the car is still under warranty) and at first, when I had just arrived, the battery checked out "good". I explained that I had just ran for over 30 minutes at 70Mph, so it would have charged up some. They left the acc on, turned on the lights and the radio, waited for a mere 3 minutes, and then tried to start the vehicle. This time, the vehicle did the clicking sound and did not crank. When they checked the battery again, the tester showed the battery was only 10.7 volts (should be 12v or above, most of the time reads closer to 14v...)

Hope that helps...

How do headlight shine? (hard to tell in sunshine)

How does horn sound? Weak battery usually means a sick horn.

Can you jump start the vehicle? If so, then it is the battery/alternator, drive it to a auto parts store, most will check out the system for free.

If not the battery, and you here a clicking noise from around the starter area, likely is the starter or the solenoid for the starter.

Did you replace the oil pan? many new cars have an oil level sensor and will not start if they read low oil so as to prevent the motor from seizing from too much heat and friction/wear.

in the oil pan(sump) there is an oil pick up pipe and a filter on the end of it. The pan being damaged the oil pick up was probably bent and hitting on the big ends or the balance of the crank shaft. have the pan pulled and check for damage on the oil pipe and pick up filter. Replace the pipe and filter as they will be cracked or fractured and in future will break and the pump will run out of oil.==engine failure.

i think you need to take the oil pan back off and take a good look at the rod bearings, this engine sounds a lot like upper end noise when the piston is hitting the bottom of the cylinder head because a rod bearing has spun.

My oil light is coming on, but the oil is full.


Did he inspect the oil pick-up tube before putting new pan on? If the old pan was caved in roughly where pick-up tube would be in pan. it may have bent it up to a point where it doesn't **** up the oil, or the tube could be cracked above the oil level & sucking more air, than oil.
