93 Ford Escort Won't Start

I have a 93 Ford Escort and a I drive a lot for my job. I was making a stop and turned the engine off, when I tried to start it again it wouldn't start. The lights and fan and over head lights were fine. No clicking noise from the starter. A very faint vinegar smell. I think it might be the starter but a friend of mine thinks it may be the celenoid (spelling?). How do I determine which it is or should I just replace both?

Rap on the starter with a hammer. If it now starts, the starting motor is bad.

I suggest you change both with Motorcraft parts for the best results. Check your connections for soundness and corrosion.
