First you would need to determine if there is spark, and if there is spark, then fuel pressure would need to be checked. Need to know where to start looking for the problem if the engine is turning over.

It must have been in the air this past month. I replaced my starter three weeks ago. Went to start it the other day and it only clicked once when turning the key. Replaced the starter again. Worked fine then bam, click is all I got. I hit the key and steering wheel and boom it started. I was able to do that for a couple days when it wouldn't turn over. Now I don't even get the click, however the battery is at 12.55V when tested. Help

12.55 volts is great, fully charged battery. There could be a problem with the ignition switch if your pounding on the steering wheel to get it started. Also make sure the battery cables are in good shape.
