Here is my problem I impounded this car and it sat in my yard for close to a year. Didn't get started too much and when I did sell it it has a problem with turning over all the time. When it cranks it fires right up but it may or may not turn over the next time you try.

Sometimes it just makes a clicking noise under the hood and that may repeat 3,4,5 times before it starts again. I had the started tested and that wasn't the problem,next I cleaned the terminals on both ends and that wasn't the problem either. I bought a new key switch from the stealer but I don't want to install it if you guys don't think that's the problem.

I read where their was a TSB about the wire coming from the starter solenoid was too small and what happens is people tend to hold the starter on too long and burn out the fuse but my fuse is ok.

Manual trans.

Any help will be great,
thanx, ben
