Engine Won't Crank Due To Starter on Toyota T100

If the engine will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter. These will tend to go out at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.

I've been driving my 96 t-100 for15 years, and it's been a great truck. But I've had to replace the starter four times now. I've tried taking it apart and cleaning the plunger and contacts with no luck. All it does is just click click click. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue.
battery replaced.... next step starter
Sometimes engine cranks, sometimes not. Battery, starter, and alternator have all been checked and test fine. When I turn the key, all dash board lights function normally, just no crank at all.... Not even clicking noises. Turn the key again and it starts right up.
car will not start. turn the key and hear clicks and then eventually engine will turn over. now no clicks and no start. had starter rebuilt 33,000 miles ago. seems to soon to fail again
