I tried to get everything on one page, makes it a little small to read. Check for voltage and ground at the starter motor. Any testing make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other voltage circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and the starter relay energized, goes to starter S terminal. The neutral or clutch switch is also involved in that circuit. Use a test light to check for voltage. The starter motor is grounded through engine block. Make sure battery has a full charge. When you check fuses, also, use a test light and check voltage on fuse circuit, applicable fuses.

SOURCE: 99 Silverado wont crank?
If it was a timing chain problem causing the click and no crank you would not be able to turn motor over manually. I feel it is electrical and state my previous request as the solution thanks. please rate if this was helpful or repost so i can help you further.

SOURCE: 2003 Chevy S10 won't start
Are you sure its the starter? did you try it in neutral? could be park neutral switch, or ignition switch, or if its a standard shift maybe it has a switch on clutch that it has to be depressed to start and its bad. As far as jump starting you cross the maine or big post on starter to small or little post on starter to do that, on a v6 starter it on the right side under exhaust manafold, and i think its on the same side on a 4 cyl.

If new starter and solinoid doesn't do the trick you might check and see if there is an adjustment on the electrial part of the ignition switch down on the colum. I had one causing a problem one time. It was like you just couldn't get the key to turn quite far enough. but a very minor adjustment on the switch worked. It was like there was an expansion or contraction in the switch because when it was warm weather it was fine but cooler didn't want to work as well. This problem was on a 86 Elcamino so things may be different on the 01 Silverado.
I have an 02 Silverado with 50,000 and no problems yet. Hopefully your new starter and solinoid will do the trick because its kind of a pain messing with ignition switch to try that.

It's hard to figure out whats going on with out any codes. Im thinking maybe the fuel pump. To check it after it stops and doe'snt start squirt some starting fluid into the carb and see if it wants to start. If it trys to start then it's a fuel problem.
