Question about 1993 Ford Probe
You may have this fixed by now BUT.. Along with the tips already posted you may want to load test the starter. What can happen is that when warm it has an excessive amp draw due to insulator failure within. Also check the battery ground at the chassi/block end and posi at starter. It is possible that this is an already known issue that they aren't telling you about and they think they fixed. If they put another starter in you should know that it is not that uncommon for a starter off the shelf to fail rapidly, WITHIN 2 weeks -3 MONTHS, or sooner. This is why I personally have know problem with "junk" parts as they have already passed the test and can last as indefinetly as a Brand knew without the faiulkure rate of replacements. Seriously. The solenoid seems to be fine because you mention the clicking noise is present.

Make sure the alternator belt is as tight as you can get it, when you jump the car the battery wont charge properly, when the lights and the heat are on the belt might cherp thats a good indication
