Make sure battery is charged and car is in neutral. Hit the body of the starter with ahammer, if it starts replace the starter. It may need to be checked though. Also have your charging system checked.

I have done the hammer to the starter and it still only clicks one time. I had the alternator checked and it is putting out the correct volts. Do you think I should just replace the starter? If it was the alternator not charging the battery once I charged the battery it should crank correct? Any help would be grear

Ya if the battery is new it shold crank. It cold be the solenoid not putting juice through as well. Once it's off most auto parts store can bench check it to see if it's good or not. Make sure the other circuitry is ok though, like power going through the nuetral safety switch and see if you can get good power to the starter with a test light.

Where would I find the neutral safty switch? And can the starter come out with out picking up the car? It looks like it might be to close to the oil filter. Do you have a picture of the removal process? And the safty switch?

If you get popwer to the purple wire then the switch is ok. It's on the top of trans. The neutral switch to remove teh starter you'll have to get under the car because you have to remove brackes, etc to get it out.
