94 dodge dakota starter problem? maybe? Sign In

1994 dodge dakota with 318 motor
hello, i have a problem but not sure what it is. at first i thought it was the starter but now im not so sure about that. when the moter is cold and you go to turn it over, it will just tick once. and if you keep turning off and on the ignition trying to start it, it just clicks (not repeatedly, one single tick per turn of the ignition). and it will eventually turn over after a number of tries, and it always cranks up immediatly on the first turn over. but after its warm you can turn the motor on and off repeatedly with no problems?! no ticking at all... only while its cold, any ideas?

thank you for any help!

If that click noise is coming from the starter, then you have a bad starter but clean all the battery terminals first for insurance.

Yep, don't overlook the basics.
