Q: 2003 freelander starting problems

asked by on

My freelander used to sometimes start and run very smoothly, no problems or noises. Then it would randomly crank but not turn on, and if I went back to it a couple hours later it may or may not turn on. It never had a problem starting in the morning. This would happen every few days in the middle of the day if I was turning it on and off a few times to different places. I took it to the mechanic and they said they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Recently its been difficult to start every time, even in the morning. It makes clicking noises and I have to try multiple times before it starts, but I am able to get it to start eventually.

My car has 145000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
