I was driving my car the other day and it died. It did not sputter or anything just went totally dead. When I tried to start it again it just made a single click. I ran the battery down trying to start it and had it charged again. When I tried to start it the next day it turned over a few times but would not stay running. An hour later I was able to start it and it ran for a few hours. Later that evening while driving it went dead again, and I have not been able to get it started again. Sometimes I get a single click others its sounds like it wants to turn over. The battery and alternator are working fine. What I am wondering is if it is the starter, or if there is something else I should check before taking it out to have it tested.
