Starter just clicks upon starting. on 1998 Toyota 4Runner

When I try to start the engine the starter clicks but does not fire the engine. If you do it multiple times it will sometimes start but seems to have a hard time. Could it be the starter or something else?

First thing is to make sure the battery cables at the battery and at the starter are clean and tight, Once that is done and it still just clicks its probably time for a rebuilt starter

I agree. Loose and dirty connection are a big problem. Get those clean if is still doing more that likely there is a starter issue
