I replaced battery today and at first it started right up no problems. A couple of hours later, I get in to start the car again and all I hear is "click, click". It won't start. It has power, radio, lights and all but just clicks. Do I need a new starter?

Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for voltage to the smaller wire on the starter. You should have 12v. If you do, chances are the starter is going bad or you have a weak connection between the battery and the starter. Double check all connections to make sure they are clean and tight. The most common problem is a bad connection.
