Sounds like the starter motor solenoid is defective, that is the click you here. The plunger moves but makes no connection due to the contacts inside the solenoid being eroded and burnt, so starter motor gets no power.

SOURCE: car wont start

I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

SOURCE: I need to remove my number 6 ignition coil but

Hello. Here is the order of things for your truck. The engine firing order for either 4.6L or 5.4L V8 is 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. Cylinders are numbered, 1-2-3-4 on the passenger side bank of cylinders beginning at the front of the engine. Cylinders are numbered, 5-6-7-8 on the driver side bank again, beginning from the front of the engine to the back.
Soooooooo the number 6 is the second one from the front of the engine on the drivers side.

1994 geo tracker won't start

first have the battery load tested as it indicates that there is a dead cell
If there is a dead cell then the dead battery will consume most of the power from the jumper so there may not be enough left for the starter and the ignition
to check for a power drain , install an amp meter i the battery to ground wire and see what current draw is occurring when everything is turned off
up to 1/2 amp indicates that the ECM is using power for the memory
up to 2 amps indicate a light on--glove box, boot , interior radio etc
more indicates a problem relay

While driving down the road my car sputtered and stalled. got it back starte adnd went about a mile and it did it again only would not start again. 94 dodge shadow 2.2 ltr engine. fuel filter, pump or

The symptoms you are describing could be caused by several things. However, that engine is known for failures in the ignition pick-up coil. When it fails, it is usually after driving the car for a while until it gets hot. The engine dies and the engine cools off a little and it can start back up like you are describing, only to fail again when the heat builds back up. It usually starts out as an intermittent problem which gets worse by occuring more and more often and finally ends up to where the engine will not restart at all.
This is the first thing I would check. If the engine starts again, the failure can usually be reproduced by wiggling and tugging slightly on the wires to the pickup coil going into the distributor.

The pickup coil ismounted inside the distributor under the cap and rotor assemblies and looks like the picture below.

Let's start with the basics. Did you notice any wetness in the distributor cap? or wetness in the coil wire boot at the coil? if you saw wetness in the distributor cap? You have a cracked cap and spark would be sporadic.
If you saw wetness in the Coil boot? The coil is bad. When the coil is bad the engine will stall when the coil gets hot. Also check and make sure ground wire from engine to firewall is very tight and clean. Actually any connection can be lost if its dirty , loose or both. I would check wires (Plug) going to coil and distributor reseat them by taking the plug off and using an electric spray cleaner and blow them out with an air gun to prevent cleaner shorting out the system.
Please leave me good response and feedback on here .
Keep in touch ask me more after you try all these and you have no luck
