    Tap on the starter lightly with a hammer this should cause your starter to start your engine, if it does then you have a bad starter and will need replacing, had the same trouble on my Ford Tempo once I then took it to my trusted mechanic and had it replaced worked great after that, oh the hammer trick my trusted mechanic taught me to do that as a test for starter problems, you can also go and get it checked free at some autoparts stores, like Autozone.
