is my starter going bad?
Sounds like a bad solenoid on starter, be sure your battery is fully charged and your battery terminals are clean, you may have a similar sound of clicking when trying to start with a faulty or weak battery.
Also you should check the starter to be sure it is tightly mounted to engine block, a loose bolt or bolts may cause a poor connection as well as engaging failure.
