The clicking noise you hear is likely the starter relay. (should be identified inside the box cover) You need to check that battery is up to full voltage, terminal connections are clean and secure and that there is 12 volts at the main power lead on the starter and power at the small trigger wire connection at the starter when the key is turned to the start position. If you have that, then very likely the starter needs to be replaced. If not you will need to check wiring and neutral safety switch as well as main fuses in the power distribution center (the box where the clicking relay is, near the battery)

sounds like your cv joint is bad . Have it replaced sooner rather than later as when it fails, you'll be stuck somewhere and will need a tow.

Ok, so the engine turns (cranks) when you turn the key to start?
Or, the engine turns slowly? Or, the relay clicks but the engine does not turn? I'm trying to help and you aren't giving me anything to work with!!! Tell me EXACTLY what is going on there...I can't see or hear it...you can.

Do you have an alarm on this? If you do, that is most likely the problem. There seems to be a problem with the alarms. You may want to have a new key made just in case. Sometimes the keys are magnetically charged and after time, it wears off.

Hear a gurgaling noise from the lower front passenger area when I first start moving forward


Could be several things, coolant in the heater core or water moving around in the evaporator case. Is the coolant level full and does water come out the drain tube of the evaporator on the ground when the A/C is running. Those are two things I'd check first.
