My car won't start and makes a one time click noise
Have you had the battery tested?
It's probably dead.
Well it starts I just got to keep trying
And when it finally turns over it doesnt sound like it was struggling with power
But I'm trying to get ahold of a battery tester
Loose or corroded battery cable will do that. Click the solenoid one time and next try start. If you do test the battery first test with cables attached, through clamps, then test bare battery posts and see if there is a difference
I agree with the above Sounds like the starter solenoid
Also if you don't have any of the testing equipment you can drive it to Sears and I think for fifteen or twenty dollars at most Sears they can check your hole starting charging system and give you an idea if its the starter or alternator or the battery or both or all three usually its just one out of the three that's bad good luck! Could be a loose ground too or wiring that's broken.
if it clicks just once when you turn the key it is likely the starter , but if it clicks more than once it is the battery is weak and not enough power left to engage the starter the proper way
Give us all an update please
