Sounds like it could be the starter solenoid. and keep in mind that just because the radio and lights work does not mean that there is enough amp/volts to engage the starter. try and jump start the car, if this works then you are in fact lacking battery power and it is time to get a new battery ( most car batteries don't last longer than 5 years -- so if you know how old the battery is you can figure it might be time or not ).

have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold to check for pump-regulator pressure and filter performance. You state that the filter was last changed in 2007 so it is well past it's blocked up date .. Run fault codes . replace the canister . Have a compression test done as the engine is getting long in the tooth and may need refreshing .. Check that the cat converter is still operational as they will block up the exhaust system and cause poor performance

Is your car well protected with antifreeze? If not, maybe a freeze plug came out. Living in Montana, cars stay outside all winter. I always use a 50-50 solution of antifreeze. Never had coolant freeze up.
Before cranking the car, check that your timing belt did not pop. Don't know how it could, sitting there 14 hours, but turn crank slowly by hand, and check that camshaft is also turning.

My 2003 Pontiac Montana van is a 6cylinder the larger of the montana's and I went to start it today it made a click noise after I turned the key not while I was turning the key,and the interior lights...


Perfect example of a dead battery. When they go, they go quickly. The plates shed material very gradually over the years. When that material piles up high enough in the bottom of the battery, the battery short-circuits itself--even if it started the car just fine ten minutes prior. Jump start the engine to get home or to the auto parts store. The alternator will supply the power to keep the engine running. (Don't turn off the engine 'til you're back home!)

I have a 2003 Pontiac Vibe (91,000 miles) that wouldn't start when I went out to go to run my next errand... just clicking sound when I turned the key. Just put a new serpentine belt on and everything...


Sounds like your battery might be low, A repeated clicking will indicate low battery, a single click would suggest really low battery or possibly starter motor bad.
