Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. Is it a single loud click or multiple fast clicks? Thanks.

single loud click. it does not always do it but you never no when,new starter was put on 4 years ago

This would point toward a failed starter even if it is newish. To verify this is the problem you will need to monitor power at both wires of starter when it happens, if both wires have at least 11v then replace starter. You are probably safe to just replace if its a intermittent problem that may be hard to test. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
