if it is making a clicking noise then it is probably the starter. If its and older car jump start and take the red wire off the battery. If it shuts off its the starter. If you can get to the starter hit it with a small hammer some times they just lock up. Take it to any autozone and they will tell you for sure. it also could be the fuel didnt say what is was doing. you must figure out if it getting gas, electric

actually if you take off the battery cable and it dies its the alternator not the starter
