Nine times out of ten if you just hear a click, click, it's the starter going bad. The next time it clicks, jack it up, locate the starter and rap on it with a hammer while someone else turns the key to the start position. If it turns right over, then your starter is beginning to fail. Time to replace it.

wellni took the starter relay out took a paper clip jumped it and starter turns over
