NO!. It does mean that a complete diagnosistic workup is required to define your exact problem. At this point in time it could be a number of issues.

I would recommend contacting a private owned shop if you don't already have one and ask that shop to give you a diagnosis only at this time. Once you know what is wrong you will be better prepared to handle the problem.

Car overheats makes a loud clicking sound from under the hood


The loud clicking and/or ticking noises that emanate from an overheated engine is actually the metal parts expanding or contracting due to the heating or cooling down. This is a sure sign of severe overheating.

Cannot start loud fast clicking noise


Clicking noise would indicate starter solenoid faulty! This would also be the case if battery low but since you have a new battery you can look at the starter solenoid!

I have a problem with my infinity g37 S . when the car is used for a while it starts to make a loud noise near the engine this make me worried.


depending on the noise, you could have lower end noise on the motor, which could mean big issues, if the noise is on top of the motor, you may have a cam issue...or you could have put the wrong fuel in and the car is "pinging" due to incorrect octane usage

When i started the car it made a loud sreeching noise could that mean that i need a new belt


If it was really loud, it's possible that the starter solenoid is not functioning properly. You get the same type of noise when you try to start a car that has already been started.

I HAVE A 1993 TOYOTA TERCEL THE CAR STARTED MAKING A LOUD CLICKING SOUND WHEN I STARTED IT AND IT WOULD MAKE THE NOISE IN PARK AND NEUTRUAL WHEN PUT IN GEAR IT WOULD GET A BIT LOUDER ON ICSALERATION IT DID...


Sounds like the starter need to be replace or rebuilt.
The clicking is due to the starter still partially engaged. Grooves are worn on the contactors and the plunger is sticking in the starter.

POWER STEERING PROBLEM - CONTAINER CONSIST TWO LEVELS. SHOULD THE BOTTOM PART BE THE NORMAL COLOUR OF THE FLUID AND THE TOP PART APPEARS TO BE DIFFERENT THEN REMOVE THE CONTAINER AND CLEAN PROPERLY AS THERE IS A SIEVE BETWEEN THE TWO LEVELS WHICH IS BLOCKED. DRAIN OIL FROM POWER STEERING SYSTEM AND REFILL WITH NEW OIL.
iF BELTS WERE RECENTLY CHANGED THEN THE PROBLEM MIGHT LY BY ONE OF THE PULLEYS THAT IS WARN. MEANING THAT THE BELT INBEDDS TO DEEP INTO THE PULLEY AND CAUSE THE BELT TO SQUEL. SHOULD YOU POUR WATER ONTO THE BELT WHILE IT IS SQUELING IT PROVES THAT IT IS EITHER THE BELT THAT NEEDS REPLACELMENT OR ONE OF THE PULLEY PROVIDING THE BELT TENSION IS INSPECT
