Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!!

Did it stall out on you or just would start one day? Have you checked for spark or fuel psi?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
had to jump couple of times,then simply cleaned connection and now been through a starter,cables, and battery with no luck .just clicks when you try to start
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
have spark and psi is good
Expert:  Brad replied 1 year ago.

Are you saying thr starter is clicking? And you have replaced it? Is it a fast clicking or 1 click? Does the engine turn over?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
replaced the starter .1 click
does not turn over
Expert:  Brad replied 1 year ago.

Can you put a socket on the crankshaft and see if the engine will spin over? If the starter is new it should just click like it's hitting the flywheel and not spinning..

Keep me posted,

Thank you
Expert:  Brad replied 1 year ago.

Glad you found it and got it running!!!

You should be in good shape now, but if your not happy with it then it would be a good time to sell it since it's running good.

Thank you for the positive rating,
