Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala
If the battery is charged, and the vehicle just "clicks" and does not even try to turn when the ignition is engaged, then the starter is likely at fault.
you can rule out your ignition coil by disconnecting the wire from the distributor, and holding it close to the metal chassis of the car, while turning the ignition. a good ignition coil will spark/arc when tested like this. you can examine the distributor cap rotor for wear, and replace if questiionable. you can examine the spark ends of the spark plugs, looking for white or black discoloration, or oil build-up, and replace if questionable. you can try replacing the spark plug wires, and if all of this is ruled out, you should strongly consider the starter.
remove the starter, and take it to a spacialty starter/alternator rebuild shop, and have them test it. if the celliniod alone tests bad, you can replace the callaniod contact or the entire cellaniod for just a few dollars, if the entire starter tests bad, then you can have it rebuilt for around $100. if the starter doesnt resolve ths situation, then you might have a broken timing belt/chain.
