SOURCE: 1997 Mazda Protege: Engine has clicking noise when idling.

Check to see if the valve lifters are not making the noise. Turn on the engine and rev it up to about 1500 rpms and see if the clicking is coming from the valve cover area.

Yeah thats what they meant, just don't idle it too high. If the problem don't go away, read it with an OBDII scanner. That will give you what the problem is.

SOURCE: engine starts but will not idle, i give it gas but will not sustain in running afyer 2 seconds engine dies

check all spark plugs and wires also check mass air flow senser located on intake tube if all is still in good working condition check the throttle position sensor if that is good then it may be your fuel pump please update when possable.

My 97 Dodge ram Van won't stay running.

Unless the vac leak is very large, it would not keep the engine from idling.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating how much air enters the intake thru the throttle body by use of the idle air control valve.
The throttle body could be gummed up, or the idle control valve may be faulty.

My 03 chevy monte carlo has a po102 code and I know the mass flow sensor connector is bad but will this cause the battery to drain for no reason? I hear a clicking noise coming from the gove compartment...

If you have a light in the glove compartment that might be staying on. I would start pulling fuses one at a time until the clicking stops. Pull a fuse, still clicking, put it back and pull another. Repeat until you find the circuit causing the problem. That will narrow down where you need to look.

Really sounds like a vacuum leak. Lean code could still be accurate. Screaming idle usually means air is getting into engine. Ruptured EGR diaphragm would vent air. Brake booster could vent air. A lot of air will show lean mix.

You may have to use different methods to test vacuum. Some use vacuum gauge to test egr and lines which dead end into solenoids. Other tests use water spray or propane gas to draw in and change rpm. You are at a disadvantage if engine does not run.

Crankshaft sensor helps set fuel volume for given rpm. Might not be counting all the rpm's, but would not account for fast idle.

My car start but shutt off inmedialty

If you have not done so pull the engine codes or have someone do it.
The codes will give you a good idea where to start otherwise the first place I would check is replacing the Crankshaft Position sensor. This is not only very common for them to fail but I have 1994 Laredo and 1996 Laredo and both had the same trouble at exactly the same time. In addition I replaced the Intake Air Temp sensor, coolant temp sensor and idle air control valve on the 1994. The clicking is probably relays and is more than likely normal.

Sounds like your IAC (Idle Air Control) valve may not be functioning properly, although not at all related to a battery change.

Are you getting a check engine light? If yes, then take it to any auto-parts store for a free scan to determine any fault.
