Ok try this have someone tap on the starter with a hammer while someone else tries to start vehicle at the same time if it starts replace starter.

If that does not work remove battery and have tested.

cracked head, leaking radiator. I guess you have to burp a '02 radiator to get out all the air. Thanks for the help.
