I need help badly...

So I bought a new starter, fuel injectors, spark plugs, spark plug wires, the whole deal for my 91 s13 (has s14 ka24de motor).

The battery is new and all connections are good. All grounds are good. All fuses are good. I got the car to start a few times after replacing the starter and it worked ok. I have an automatic. Today, I drove it to school and tried to start it again and it didn't work. It just makes a big click when I crank. It does not turn over and everything else seems to be fine.

PLEASE HELP. IT ALREADY GOT A TICKET FOR BEING PARKED IN A 2 HOUR ZONE SO ANY HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED.

it sounds like your starter might be a little crooked or not lined up right. try loosening it a little and moving it around then tighten it back up.


or have someone tap it with a hammer while trying to start it. its happened to me before. also make sure your battery terminals are secure.


goodluck

Try staring it in neutral, the inhibitor switch could be bad or out of adjustment.
