Re: 1998 Dodge Intrepid clicking noise under upper Intake...
My car had that problem and now it's fixed.
I had to replace the cam censor. Don't ask me why, it was really weird.. it only started acting up when the car heated up. However, the car would eventually turn off if I didn't keep it idling with one foot on the gas and one on the break at a stop.
You can take your car to the mechanic and ask them to check the cam censor.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Could be the cable that actavates the throttle plate on the intake..
The cable comes from the gas pedel and pulls on the throttle plane in the intake manifold.. opening the plate to let air flow through to the engine. On the other side from the cable is a plastic sensor with wires attached to it this is the Throttle position sensor.. if this is disconnected or broken the computer cannot receive the single that you are pushing on the gas pedel.. very rare for the throttle position sensor to break completly.. best posibility broken cable.. open hood find cable connected to throttle body, have someone in car push pedel see if it moves. Good luck.
If i am understanding your question correctly, when you push your gas petal down, there is no resistance to it or very little. If this is the case, I would raise the hood and track the linkage to the intake throttle body. there should be a spring on it to return the accelerator to the idle position. you may also look under the dash board above the gas petal as it may have a spring as well that will return it to the idle position.
It is suggested that you always start with first code first. not knowing what code came first, and my experience with Dodge. i have found that them symptoms resemble a map,sensor/check vacuum hose and vacuum.
It's hard to diagnose with just the small information you have stated, but it 'sounds' like it's that Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve gasket.
In your cylinder head is a runner that brings exhaust gas up through the intake manifold. The EGR valve is attached to the intake manifold, and the sensory part of the EGR valve sits down in the pathway of the runner.
A bad EGR valve gasket will let exhaust gasses escape, making the sound you described.
