Ever think it might be your battery? By the way, this is probably the wrong place for this thread.

Sounds like a bad fuel pump to me...my Tracker did that. You could crank on it all day, and you'd just hear a click, and then the starter would grind & grind w/ nothing happening.

Or it could be the starter...another fun one w/ the Tracker was after leaving it for a trip @ the airport for a week, it had been parked on a rainy day. When I got back, the starter wouldn't even move, but when I had it pushed a bit (stick, so I was going to pop-start it) the starter fixed itself.
