Failed to start, so had it towed home. Change starter. Started three times very cleanly when tested, but on one of the starts, there was a slight delay from turning the key to the engine starting to turn over. This delay was noticed occasionally prior to it failing to start at all. Fourth and subsequent attempts click but don't turn over engine.

Hello,

If you try to start the engine several times in a row, without letting it run for a period of time, it will discharge the battery and won't start after several attempts.

So, have you tried to jump start it to see if it is not a discharged battery?

Also, when you try to start it now, what does it do?

Let me know of any questions.
Thank you.
