first of all I would check the earth strap from the gearbox to the body. These are an extremely common problem. When the start to corrode its a hit or a miss when trying to start the car and usually just makes clicking noises when trying to start, like the problem you are having. Easy way to check it, connect a jump lead from the negative terminal of the battery to a clean part of the engine and try to start it. If it starts, you know what the problem is
