Looks like your starter motor brushes to warn don too much, you can either pull it apart yourself to try and fix it or take it to a auto electrician.

Sounds a bad starter that may have damaged the ring gear on the flywheel. When it grinds like that the starter is not fully engaging the ring gear and could have damaged it. The starter needs to be removed and the gear inspected thru the mounting hole for the starter. Minimum you need a starter

Battery is good but when I turn it on it just clicks won't start,maybe after 20 times it starts

Without hearing the sound it makes - it's kind of hard to diagnose.

The engine starting process consists of turning the key to start, the starter motor's rotor moving forward to engage the engine's flywheel, and then the starter motor 's "rotor" spinning until you move the key from "start" to "run". You can hear the starter motor spinning - but one usually can't hear the rotor moving forward to engage the flywheel. As a result, you hear the odd spinning sound - which is the starter rotor spinning. The engine never actually turns over because the rotor never engages the fly wheel. If this is the case, then it is very likely that your starter needs to be checked and / or replaced.

Good luck!

How do you tell if a starter is going bad

The starter will drag and not turn the engine over very fast. The starter solenoid is part of the starter also. It will just click a few times before it starts turning the engine over if it is going bad. It will steadily get worse. You will have to click the starter solenoid several times before it will start after several times. Eventually it will not engage the starter.

Engine will not crank, and I've already replaced to terminals on the battery. Plenty of juice from the battery but no start

Very possible bad starter. Do you hear any clicking noise at the starter? You can try taking a long metal rod and smacking on the starter where the solenoid is while someone is trying to start the vehicle and see if the starter will engage at that time. Good luck.

Will not start. Won't even turn over. I can hear power going to the fuel pump. Checked all relays, fuses and diodes all ok.

Make sure you have juice on the single small wire at the starter when the key is in the start position. If you do then it is probably the starter.

If I understand the problem, you turn the key, you hear the starter engage, but the engine itself does not turn over. Sounds like the gear that connects the starter to the fly wheel may be damaged. To check, remove the starter and inspect the end with the gear for any teath missing or damaged.
