Make sure the engine is not hydrolocked from a blown head gasket. We had a 93 Cougar with the 3.8 V6 and one day it did exactly as you described. I continually hit the starter, click, click click and it finally started after bending the #3 connecting rod due to coolant in the #3 cylinder. This is unlikely what is wrong with your car, but it could happen. Check and make certain all the battery cables are clean and tight. Also try to start it in neutral instead of park.
