Question about Infiniti Q45
Loosing a lot of oil is no good. if it has a very "strong " smell and is light in color it is coming from the gearbox. I suspect there is a problem whit the CV joints (the loud clicking noise when turning) and it has gone so bad in might cause the gearbox oil to start leaking. The shaking is also not a good sign. Expensive repairs unfortunately but need to be done immediately. Can loose a driveshaft causing more damage.

Slim possibility it could be a bearing too. When it's not under load and is free-wheeling (2wd) the stress on the hub assembly changes, making the clicking more noticeable. When under a load, being driven, the pressure on the bearing would be more steady (in 4wd) and might make it less noticeable, if at all.

From what you are describing it sounds like it must be a valve lifter sticking. Try putting a cup of transmission oil in your crankcase, or pick up some suitable additive from your local parts store. I wish i could hear it and give you a better idea. Maybe let them listen to it at the parts store, and they can determine if it's a lifter or not. Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: loud clicking noise
It sounds like one of your pistons are bad as in the connecting rod pin's to the piston is loose and your getting to much internal engine pressure, that's why your getting lot's of oil coming out the top if your engine. Sorry for the news friend but time to retire the car, the cost is going to be greater to repair then replace.

It sounds like a condenser in your alternator that works like an isolation transformer in stereo equipment to stop a ground loop between two components. Its allowing a frequency to just pass thru without stopping it at the source.
