Is it just one click noise per push of the pedal or is it a repetitive clicking noise that gets faster as the engine speeds up? if its from the engine, it could be a warped valve making contact with the cylinder head. not a HUGE problem but causes less MPG and less power. to fix that, (assuming you know which valve is warped) youll need a lot of time, a lot of patience, a valve spring compressor (looks like a C clamp,) different socket wrench tools, possibly some screwdrivers, and maybe a couple more misc things. procedure: youd drain the oil, take off the valve cover, detach exhaust manifold from cyl head, remove the cylinder head, use the spring compressor to tighten the valve spring down to remove the old valve, then install the new one, put the head back on, reattach exhaust manifold, put the valve cover back on (might as well replace head and valve cover gaskets while you have the chance) then fill the oil back up. also if you had to remove anything above the valve cover to get to it, reinstall those as well.

My gas pedal gets hard during driving can my idle pulley cause that

Look under the hood. you should find a part under there with two metal thin lines connected to it so that when you push the gas pedal, that part moves up, when released, it should go back down, have someone press the gas pedal and look for it right on top of the engine. is there something blocking it? wiring harness, etc.?

Loud clicking during hard accelerating

When you say the work clicking I think of CV axles going bad. But you would mostly hear this when turning the car. A cracked exhaust manifold will make a ticking noise when the cylinder fires where the crack or leak is. It will be louder when cold as the metal will shrink when colder then expand and close in the crack when hot. If the power really is cutting out when you hear the clicking then it could be an arcing plug wire or plug but this would throw a trouble code for a misfire.

Rear car driver side noise when there is gas in the tank and when pushing gas pedal

The problem you are discribing could well be the impending failure of the fuel pump I am assuming that this is a late model fuel injected car . The noise is transfered by the fuel in the tank . Have a tech check and make sure you have only a small amount of fuel in the tank when getting the pump replaced as the gas tank must be removed in order to replace the pump . Hope this is some help

Is it an automatic or manual trans ?
An automatic should downshift when you push on the gas pedal. The shaking could be a miss-fire or lack of fuel. The noise could be a knock from the engine or something in the exhaust system.
The freaking jet noise could be an exhaust leak or something going on with the air cleaner or a vac leak.

I hear a metalic clicking noise when i step on my gas pedal, why

It could be your CV Joints. To test them, turn hard to one side and hit the gas. If it get's worse you have a bad CV Joint. If not, you may have brakes dragging or a hub bearing going bad. I would start with the CV Joints first, especially if you have more than 60K Miles on the vehicle.
