My Garage door wont close with my remote but It will open. When I press the button on the inside wall I have to hold it down to get it to close. But I can just press it when I want to open it. The biggest problem is after I drive the out of the garage it wont close with the remote so I have to go back in to close it and then go out through the front door. Very aggravating. When I try to close it with the remote, the motor on the ceiling causes the light to flash 4 times and you can hear a clicking sound. It acts like it is starting to go down but something is stopping it. How can I fix this?

Yes! Your garage door opener can be repaired, but depending on the age of the opener, it might in the long run be less costly just to purchase a new one. The openers today have really come down in price and are much better that old models.
