The clicking noise will be a relay working so find it by feel and you will have the problem source. You will then have to find out why the circuit to the relay is intermittent to cause the clicking

SOURCE: STARTS RUNS ROUGH BUT YOU CARNT TOUCH ACCELRATOR AS IT DIES STRAIGHT AWAY

The list of things to check is long and for the most part basic. I'd start with general tune-up diagnostics. My money is on the the dist cap & rotor as your culprits -these get the most wear, easiest to fix and the 1st place I'd look. It will cause it to run rough and die when you accelerate because it is not firing or firing the wrong cylinders. It may look good but still have a crack that you can't find. But I predict you will find a nice little pile of carbon dust and states of corrosion on the rotor & pins in the cap like I did when I had the same problem on my Civic a few years ago.

If that doesn't do the trick, you want to start by determining if it is dying from too little fuel or a weak spark
Weak spark will cause flooding- too much gas leftover after a weak spark eventually floods the engine- you will probably smell gas at the throttle body and you will have to wait before it will start again due to flooding. Not an absolute diagnostic, but if you smell fuel you can be pretty sure your problem is ignition or emissions related. It may still be an emissions component such as EGR or even a clogged cat or a potato stuck up the tailpipe.
Lean fuel conditions point to the fuel filter, fuel rail and fuel pump pressures and injectors.

General tune-up diagnostics:
Ignition: dist cap & rotor; Check plugs and wire conditions; Ignition coil or transistors may be bad but not causing a total loss of spark
Fuel & Emissions: Fuel filter, fuel rail pressures, EGR & PCV valves; check diagnostic codes from your OBD it might give a clue.
Hows your compression and timing? If you have over 90Kmiles and you haven't replaced your timing belt it may have stretched or jumped a gear notch. If this is the case you should change it before it breaks and bends your valves, causing expensive damage to the valve train.
If you want to fix your own then pick up a Haynes manual for your model and pick up the Haynes emissions & fuel injection books to demystify emissions computer codes, troubleshooting and repair. You can probably borrow these from your library or pick them up cheap at a used book store if money is tight.

SOURCE: idle is too low, car dies, engine runs fine

An IAC (idle air control) motor is designed to adjust the engine idle RPM speed by opening and closing an air bypass passage inside the throttle body. The car computer or ECM (electronic control module) receives information from various sensors and will output signals to adjust the IAC motor in or out to adjust engine idle speed by controlling engine idle air.
An IAC motor is highly susceptible to carbon and coking build up; if an IAC goes too long without cleaning it can cause stalling and poor idle quality. Some cars are designed with a large vacuum transfer hose that connects the intake manifold to the IAC (idle air control) motor. If a broken or dilapidated these vacuum lines can cause the engine to lose vacuum which will allow the engine to run rough and die. 
Inspect all engine and accessory vacuum lines to look for missing, torn or dilapidated lines and replace as needed. To check the IAC motor remove the unit, with the wires connected turn the key to the "on" position without starting the engine, the IAC should move in or out. 
If the IAC motor does nothing it has probably failed, replace it with a new unit and recheck system. Note: while the IAC motor is removed clean (use aerosol carburetor cleaner) the passages the IAC uses to control idle air speed.

Good luck and hope this helps

SOURCE: My 2002 Honda CRV will start up and then

This sounds like a classic vacuum leak problem. Check under hood to make sure all the hoses are connected or have someone who knows how do it for you. Locate the air sensor in the fresh air intake stream and make sure there are no leaks between it and the engine.

How does it idle in park , does it run ruff or smooth? Are any lights lit on the dash , check engine etc. ? Could have a partially plugged IAC air passage .idle air control (IAC) valve ! The engine computer uses the IAC to control idle , when under a load such as when put into gear the computer raises the idle !

My 97 Ford Taurus 3.0L V-6 idles ruff when warm, and will sometimes die. You can start it and go and it does fine until you shut the car off. When you restart, before the car cools down, it doesn't want to...


Yes and the way it runs.
Disconnect and plug the vacuum lines to the EGR, and see if you still have idle and driveability issues. If not replace the Valve.

My 84 caprice classic it has a very shakie idle


When you start your car, you step on the gas and turn the key, you have set the high idle feature on the carb as part of the warmup sequence. When you step on the gas again, you kick high idle off ...if premature, the engine is cold and it runs ruff, and wikll likely stall under some circumstances until you have reached operating temp. The reason for the ruffness ...is gasoline becomes 'gas' better when the engine is at operating temp than when the engine is cold.

Your battery is getting tired. When you step on the gas and the lights get brighter, it is because you are running the alternator at a higher speed and you are making more electricity which the lights are more than happy to gobble up.

Keep in mind your car is notonly a Caprice Classic ... it is a classic, 26 year old vehicle. It needs a little more TLC than a newer model.

Low idle, also engine runs alittle ruff after fill-up.


Sounds like the fuel pump is starting to go, the problem after fill up is most always related to a failing pump. The other issue may be a dirty throttle valve.
