Does the starter solenoid and/or starter relay click when you turn the key to start?
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.
before I forget, here is the wiring diagram.If you can remove the starter relay, go ahead and remove it and test for voltage in the socket. 2 spots should be hot when the key is turned to start with the transmission in park. If so, try a new relay. If not, check or replace that fusible link M in the fuse box.

Hi Mike, sorry for the late response. I finally took it to my mechanic. It ended up being the starter. He hammered it a few solid times and it started. He then replaced the starter. I just don't understand how I take it to Autozone and they check it in their machine and it passed several times.Thanks again,

The starter is getting stuck to the teeth on the flywheel. Shim it if you can and move the teeth further apart, but I believe your mechanic already did that. When you remove a starter and have it bench tested, they can only test the starter motor itself and not the fit with the teeth on the flywheel/flexplate.
