Hi check the batery conection to be well tigth and clean, if they are ok you have to check the starter motor an the starter solenoid, very often its only brushes. allso if you rotate the crank shaft some times fix the problem. and dont forget to check the batery charge.

Starter clicks but car won't start

Turn on the headlights. If they're nice and bright, try the horn. If the horn sounds o.k. the battery is probably o.k. Locate the starter under the motor. Find a spot on the side of the starter that you can hit with a hammer. Have somebody turn the key while you hit the starter with the hammer. If it starts, you need a new starter. You can only do this a couple of times before it won't work at all.

If your 1983 Buick Regal has a good battery but makes a clicking noise and will not start, you should check and make sure its getting spark, check your starter, also check your battery connections, and the starter cables.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

87 Subaru GL wagon. Clicks when key is turned.

It def sounds like a starter prob, if you have replaced the wires its more than likely the starter motor itself, also check the battery voltage

I wonder if the starter relay is bad. When Napa tested the starter they likely just put 12 volts direct to the drive. The motor it seems is fine but if the relay (attached to the starter motor?) is sticking or failed then you get your symtoms.
I suggest you pull the starter motor again and have them, NAPA, test the relay. You MAY be able to replace the relay only. It might be possible to clean it out or rebuild it, but thats iffy at best.
Good luck

if the starter is going out it will do exactly as you are describing, but that does not necessarily mean the starter is the issue. if you know where the starter is located something you can try is tap the starter a few times with a hammer use firm taps, but don't beat the stew out of it, then try to start the car usually it will work. normally the starter fails to start because the brushes inside it over time wear down and begin to stick the tapping of the hammer will usually free them temporarily and allow the car to start.

Car not starting

starter motor is jammed. solenoid on the starter is sticking. if its a manual gearbox put the car bin 4th gear, release the handbrake and rock the car back and forth.if you hear a clunk then the solenoid has released. try starting the car again. if its an automatic remove the stater motor and investgate. either way your starter motor needs overhaul or replacing
