1996 Corsica 3.1 V-6 Intermittent problem starting. Can Hear Whirring, clicking

Please help!
My Corsica will not start sometimes. Engine turns. I hear whirring clicking only when car isn't going to start. Usually after a few tries it starts andf runs fine. I'm sure it will quit completely sometime.

Need a better description on the problem. From this, sounds like a wiped starter or poor connection.

The starter turns the engine just fine. The whirring clicking sound is like it is behind the glove box. I suspect a fuel injector relay but I don't want to just start replacing unless this will fix my problem.

Could be a bad blower fan motor. Disconnect it and see if the whirring goes away. If it does, look for a bad fan motor/restrictions in the blades.

when the car doesnt want to start get under the hood pull one of the plugs stick the plug back into the plug wire, have someone crank the motor and see what color the spark, if it isnt blue your ignition module is going out...
