Keeps turning over and over

quick questions guys,More than a few times my 04 Rubi with 55k on her will turn over about a dozen times or so and then start . Have other people had this problem?I searched the forum and didnt find to much.Any "quick" fixes .Also a few times when turning off a deep ticking or clicking noise comes from the engine as it stops running ,usually after a long run .This hapens after the ignition is off and engine rpm's are winding down .It sounds junky.Thanks everyone

My 00 SE is doing the same thing. Usually, this means the little valves in the fuel pump are stuck open. Once you turn it off, the fuel just drains out of the lines and back into the tank. So, the next time you crank it, your first few cranks are actually just filling the lines back up. It's annoying, and it will get worse, but for about $100, Napa sells the fuel pump.
No noises after shutoff though. Sorry, hope this helps!

try turning the key to run (the postion just before you engage the starter, in case you don't know what I'm saying) and letting it sit there for a second or two before cranking. Mine does it sometimes and this seems to do the trick for free.

Next time this happens, narrow down the problem by testing for fuel and spark.

Push the schrader valve on the fuel rail and see if you get a squirt of fuel.

If so, next pull a plug wire and check for spark.

In all honesty, it got better on its own.I was going to bring it in to the dealer under the extended warranty but murphy laws came in and fixed it so now i get to wait and see.The key turning ideas didnt work for me .

Your hard starting could be from a dirty IAC. Take the two little screws off and clean it real good with throttle body cleaner and an old tooth brush. Clean the throat above and below the throttle plate along with inside the IAC ports.

If you don't know where it's at, it's on the passenger side of the throttle body just a little above the throttle plate, pointing to the rear. No need to disconnect the wiring harness from it to clean it.

I had this issue and mine was weak battery. It finally croaked last week really didn't realize it was bad until it just decide not to turn over one afternoon. Replaced it and now it starts when I shake the keys at it. A quick battery test at your favorite auto parts store might at least eliminate that as a problem.
