start with checking ignition switch on the side of column just above break paddle most cars have a rod going to a starter switch there , make sure it s in the hole. adjust by mounting bolts. check loose bolts on starter wires.

Truck wouldnt start battery was replaced and when i get in before i put key in there is a ticking sound that stops for a few seconds and then starts again and wont turn over although cauges and radio work....

Sounds like either the starter motor is going out or the electrical wiring going to the starter is bad. Take it to a shop and have them inspect it, this problem will only get worse until the car will not start up any more.

Car made a ticking noise every once in a while, the engine has 120xxx miles on it runs really good but would make this noise every so often. went to start it one day and it wouldnt start. tried to jump the...

the probable clicking may be a failed starter, remove and inspect, or have tested at pepboys,autozone or similar store. There is and inspection hole in the top of the engine in the front timing belt cover, verify that it is not broken, most times when the timing belt fails the car will overheat, only because chryslers design uses the timing belt to turn the water pump, with a broken belt, the pump can not cool the engine causing it to overheat.
I wish you luck and hope it is the starter, however at the mileage you are at if the belt is not broken it is only a matter of time, have it replaced as prevntative maitenance or you will have a large bill to pay.

Recharge the parts store will do it for free if you tell them you would like know if it is good.

Replace the starter...or, if you remove the starter, take it to an auto parts store to have it tested.

2000 kia sportage engine wont start when hot it cranks and when it bucks the starter it will start

sounds **** it jumped timing bad belt dont start it cause you run the risk of smashing a valve while it is out of time this is my thought
  1. Apply the parking brake.
  2. Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature.
  3. Turn off all electrical loads.
  4. Connect a tachometer and verify idle speed is between 750-850 RPM.
  5. Connect a timing light to number one cylinder.
  6. Verify the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley and the timing mark on the timing belt cover are aligned at 4°BTDC.

2000 sportage hard to start after it is shut off or in morning

i have a 2000 sportage and every time mine doesn't start it acts like it may be the spark plugs or something to do with the fuel pump but it is always the starter. I have had it for 7 years and have had to replace the starter 4 times.

Theres a solenoid on the starter to engage the starter onto the flywheel. The solenoid could be going out.

Turn ignition to crank and nothing happens??

find the starter or ignition relay and replace it... generally either on the fuse panel inside the car or the fuse panel located in the engine compartment.
