    I have checked the alternator, replaced the battery and starter. Tried to start my truck twice and now it's back to just one click and done

    Have you tried starting it in neutral?

    Get a wrench on the crankshaft to see if the engine is seized or hydro-locked.

    Was the shutdown normal the last time it was driven?

    So i tried that and only loosened the bolt then I held down the brakes and it cracked over. Last time it ran into was driving home and it shut off on me

    I don't understand. You had to apply the brakes to turn the crankshaft? You should be able to turn it either clockwise or counterclockwise.

    Does your Sonoma have a manual or automatic transmission?
