When I turn the key to start the car I hear a single clicking sound. I continue to turn the ignition and there is always a single click. Eventually the car will turn over and then it will run fine. Does this sound like a battery or starter problem?

Do you

Worn contacts inside the starter solenoid. It will continue to get worse if you let it but it usually takes a while before it will no longer crank.
