engine just clicks when itry to start
 
recently replaced the battery, just replaced starter/solenoid this morning thought that was the problem, when i attempt to crank it it simply clicks like a bad solenoid, then does nothing

Try to jump start, if it starts, replace battery cables.

Did you check to see how dirty the battery cable end going to the starter was? I had an issue like this, thought the starter might be going. Cleaned up the terminal and good as new (128,000+ on original starter).

Got it working, the battery terminal end of the wire was highly corroded and i couldnt see it, cleand and remade the connection worked like a charm, the old starter was inhorrible shape, needed a new one anyways it fell apart in my hand

If the corrosion made it's way into the insulating layer it may be just a temporary fix.
