Have you checked your battery, battery connections and starter connections (all contacts should be clean and tight)?

Hello Herman,

IF the battery is good, cables and contacts to battery and starter also good, then next i would suspect the starter.
In your case worn starter brushes would cause exactly the symptoms you described (slow turn, and clicking sometimes before rotating).

In which case the starter will require removing, and disassembling to replace the brushes and assemble and refit.

Thank you for your trust! Get back to me if you need more info..if not, Thank you in advance for the positive rating...
