Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. is it not starting? is the engine cranking? did you make sure you reconnected all of the coils?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
it starts after you turn the key a few times. the first time you turn the key it will turn the lights on but just clicks.
Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

so it clicks one time?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Clicks when ever you turn the key. Usually will start the third or fourth try
Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

ok, if ita one click each time then it starts, then that is a starter issue.

if you turn the key to start and you get one click and you keep trying and continue to get one click, then it finally catches, its a starter issue. check the wires at the starter make sure they are tight and not corroded. make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight to the point you cannot move them with your hand. check where the negative battery cable connects to the block, make sure its tight. you probablr knocked something loose
