HI, my name is***** sounds like your starter motor is going bad. If there is a bad spot on the armature of the starter motor or if the starter brushes are worn you can get an intermittent click when trying to start the car. If the click is coming from the starter motor you will need to replace the starter.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I will rate and reply once the starter is replaced

Sounds good. Make sure that the clicking is coming from the starter motor before you have the starter replaced. A voltage test should be performed at the starter to be sure the proper voltages exist when it won't crank.

I'll be here if you need further assistance.
