Its a vacuum chamber that stores vacuum for when the 4wd or heater vents are used so engine performance is sustained. there is a check valve just up from it that has a t in it.

Are you describing the nitrogen chamber for the anti-lock brakes?
Sometimes referred to as "the Bomb" , nitrogen chambers accumulate hydralic pressure against compressed nitrogen seppparted by a diaphragm. Their purpose is to supply lots of fluid pressure for a brief period (as in the acutation of the ABS). In this instance, they are located underhood in the area near the brake master cylinder.

The thermometer image has 2 meanings

1- check your heat gauge the temp might be too high

2- check your coolant level

In your case it is most probably your coolant level.

Top it up with normal water and have it checked out, it must be leaking coolant somewhere.

the coolant bottle is the big round one that looks like a ball with a blue or black flat cap.

Your front "ball & socket" joints are in dire need of lubrication. You need to do this:
Take the tires off, and look for a fill plug behind the hub, on the housing, above the ball & socket. Remove the plug, and fill it up with 80-90 gear oil. Replace the plug, do the other side.
What you have is a dry joint, and the clicking noise is coming from the u-joint (actually called a "Rzeppa" joint), inside the ball/socket/hub...a good lubrication will eliminate your condition. Hope this answers your question, please feel free to comment back with any other questions...And, thanks for choosing FixYa.
