Car won't start!

I've been having this problem every once in a while where my car will not start and random times. I'll shut it off and go in walmart or something and come back out and when i turn the key, all i get is a "click" and nothing else....if i do it about 6 or 7 times, it eventually starts up. right now it wont start at all....anyone know what causes this? Help! lol

Sticky starter solenoid..... carry a hammer and rap it to loosen it up.

It is most likely either the starter or the solenoid. When you get tied of the hammer, replace the starter/solenoid.

Time for a new starter. Make sure you get a Bosch rebuild so you are not doing it again in a year.

Clicking=bad solenoid

Which in a round about way means its rebuilt starter time. I guess you could probably just replace the solenoid. I just prefer to fix things once in for all so I don't have to mess with it again.
