I would begin by checking the condition of the engine oil. If its black and thick, might want to change first. Then, manually turn the engine over to see if you are able to do so. If it's a gas engine, recommend you remove all the spark plugs to make it easier to turn. Also might want to remove serpentine belt.
Are you able to identify where the noise if coming from when trying to start the car ? If so, after doing above procedures, have someone turn key and you verify noise.

2002 izuzu rodeo 4x4 stopped runing while driving and now wont start and sounds bad when i try to start it.

all engines can stall
with modern engines, the PCM does everything in its power, to prevent stalls .
the top cause is bad spark plugs or bad spark.
if then engine make odd sounds,?
all engines the run too slow shake and make odd sounds.
if the sound is metallic, (think of Micky mouse with tiny hammer hitting a tin bucket) that be bad sound.

no engine stated,but if the sounds are bad, id not ever try to start it. or bend valves in the head. (4cylinder)
if you ignored the cam belt, and not service it (new one)
at the proper time , the engine either stalls, no damage
or with 4cyl yes, damage.
both the 2.2L gas and 2.2l diesel engines are interference engines.

if you told me what engine you have, I can give 10x better advice.

do not run the 2.2L if the engine sounds BAD.
or you make it worse.

2009 acura tsx steering column won't lock and car won't turn over

cranks ok, and fast
starts sometimes but is rich
lots of reasons for that.
bad engine (lost compression on 1 or more cylinders or all)
bad spark (ever do a tune up?)
bad fueling

we do 3 tests, and find it. do you want to do simple tests
or guess. we can do both, but the latter is $$$$$$$$

When Starting van 4.2l v6 starter sounds like it is strugling and engine slow to start. Engine was making sounds of squeeking a couple of days before it died. Sounded like berrings going bad. Now starter...

the starter needs a starter drive, even if the engine is locked up the starter should still engage with the flywheel, but before i did any thing i would try to turn the engine over by hand,you can do this by using a socket and ratchet on the front crankshaft pulley mount bolt if you cant turn the engine over by hand try removing the drive belt and see if you can turn it then, if you can then check all the drive pulley's all should turn freely by hand, if the engine still will not turn by hand with out the belt then you most likely have sized the engine.

Car has power but wont start but it does have a clicking sound like its the starter. or could it be that my engine is lock?

Try turning the crankshaft pulley by hand, with a wrench, to see if the engine will actually turn. If it does, your starter is likely bad. If the engine refuses to turn by hand, with a wrench, then it's probably locked up and no good.

Car wont start, stalled out

Sounds bad try turning the engine over with the spark plugs out. Start looking for a used engine.

Electronic lock/unlock not working

Apparently the "LOCK" function is working normally because the burglar alarm is being activated when you 'lock' the car. Is this right?
The fact the engine won't start when the burglar alarm is activated is NORMAL If the doors will not UNLOCK front the driver's door manual switch, I believe you have a bad DOOR UNLOCK relay in the control module.

Could this be my compressor going out?

The AC compressor shaft is riding on a electronic clutch pack.

When the pressure need to built up the clutch will LOCK and you will see the shaft start spinning.

Start the car and max out the ac. The clutch should lock up within 2 minutes.

Listen for a click sound from the clutch.

A badly damage clutch will lock up the belt!

You DO NOT want to be anywhere near the belt because it will snap.

An AC system should last 3--6 years.

NO using the ac compressor is a bad thing.

Let an AC guy to test the low side AC line pressure.

Good luck
