If its an interference motor meaning the valves come in contact with the piston when the chain fails.then around $350maybe but a new timing chain should be around $50-$75

2007 Acura tl 3.2 110000 miles engine makes a clicking noise when idling& driving I'll done the oil change and transmission flush but still haerd the clicking

At 110000 miles it could be:
1. the serpentine belt or one of the idler pulleys
2. the water pump
3. the timing belt or one of its idler pulleys
4. to a lesser extent, the power steering pump
5. a valve lifter
Here is a video showing what is on the front of the engine
You may want to get a mechanics stethoscope and carefully start trying to pinpoint the noise [keep fingers far away from belts and pulleys, I know 3 people that lost finger tips this way].

My 1996 Honda Civic has a little over 90,000 miles...

Its time for a new belt, and a good idea to replace any iffy parts at the same time, if the water pump is run on the same belt replace now,

Does my 98 Rodeo have a timing belt or a timing chain?

You are definitely due for a timing belt if you havent done so.
Shop prices vary a lot, so I hope you have someone you trust....non the less, your 98 rodeo has a timing belt...and it is good money spent, to also replace your waterpump and tensioner too.
All of the parts can be purchased for about $125, and often the entire job can be taken care of in a shop for about $200 labor, but I would shop around a bit...

Timing chain or belt for a 2004 Honda Accord

It depends, 4cyl. is a chain, the 6cyl. is a belt and it is an interference engine. I have not done this one yet, but Hondas are never that easy.
