Clicking sound when starting to accelerate

2000 jeep cherokee classic w/ 183,000 miles. it gets worse when I start turning out of my parking spot and it will go away after I get above 20 mph. does not come back after I get the jeep moving and I generally don't hear it except when I first start it up and move it. also made the sound when I had to put it in 4wd to get over a dip in the road that was dirt to get onto pavement. the tires jump pretty significantly on pavement in 4wd but it works good. I think it might be a u joint going bad.

I agree with you, sounds like one of your front driveshaft,or axle shaft u-joints, is probably dry and that is what is causing your noise, those are fairly easy to replace if you don't have a press just use a vise a hammer and a socket about the same size as your caps, oh one more thing you may want to check first, jack up the front put it on jack stands and try to wobble your tire on either side up and down, if you have movement it's likely your wheel bearing..

SOURCE: 2006 Honda Pilot - Road Noise - not tires.

the tires make steady noise , check the wheel bearing as noises get high and low at the same speed , and i also would check for diff if it's 4wd.

SOURCE: Honda Pilot 111,000 miles. Wheel or tire noise?

it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.

Testimonial: "Rotating the tires didn't seem to change the noise. They are rotated and balanced every 5000 miles. There's still about another year's tread left. "

'99 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0 Clicking/popping when I turn the wheel to the left, such as pulling into a parking space or making a u-turn. Started a few days ago and has gotten worse very quickly.

sounds like your cv joint is bad . Have it replaced sooner rather than later as when it fails, you'll be stuck somewhere and will need a tow.

My engine wont start but when i jiggle the shifter in park there is a certain spot it does start

There is a switch in the shifter called the neutral safety switch. This keeps the car from being started except when it is in park or neutral. Yours is going bad. You might try starting in neutral instead of park if that works better. This will get worse until it fails completely.

I parked the Jeep last Friday and was running great, I came back Wednesday and the Jeep won't start, turns over but won't start.

it is very possible that the fuel pump has failed, have the fuel pressure checked, if the truck has around 100,000 miles or more then this is even more likely.

Accelerated clicking/knocking noise when i start driving

sounds like your CV joints are worn out. If the clicking noise gets worse when turning then its a definite possibility. Also check the CV joint boots for splits as this can quickly wear them out. The dust mixes with the grease to form a grinding paste.

93 grand cherokee, when i start the car it wont stay on it will shuutdown unless i press the accelerator, when the car is on for a while it stays put when its on neutral or park, but when on drive it...

Check wires, cap , rotor and coil...Just a quick guess, but it sounds like a classic ignition misfire. (of course because I said this it will turn out to be a left rear taillight bulb...just having that kind of week!!)Seriously, that's where I'd begin looking!
Good luck
