See if you can use jumper cables. A bad battery can cause this.

Why won't my car start? What is making the clicking noises coming from the engine compartment?


soleniod on the starter motor is the most likely source of the clicking noise. The starter motor may be faulty and not cranking over the motor.

2005 vue 2.2 stick makes a slap or clunk sound when fast acceleration or quick stop,


because of the torque on manual transmissions, especially when driving hard, they can wear out the motor mounts. The rubber is only meant for everyday driving. If you are trying to race it, I suggest upgrading your motor mounts to a urethane motor mount for more engine stability. Now because they are stronger and stiffer, you will get more engine vibration in the cabin. Excessive engine movement can cause damage to parts over time. Now if you don't have a cherry picker to stablize your engine while replacing the mounts, a jack w/ a block of wood under the oil pan will relive pressure so you can change out one mount at a time.

I was driving and my car started making a really loud rattle noise everytime i went over anything. now this just started happening today and i sounds like something is really loose underneath the front of...


It could be the exhaust mounts which are rubber and break over time. If you grab the tail pipe when it is not hot, can you easily move it up and down. If so you will have to get on the ground and look down the length of the exhaust to find the rubber mounts. Usually the top of the remains attached to the vehicle chassis hook or the exhaust mounts, which makes it easier to identify the connection point. The other possible problem is the strut or shock is broken. You will need to get under the car to look at the suspension or remove the wheel to do the same. Last, check the motor mounts if they are broken.

A/c doesn't blow unless high speed


Its your blower motor. Check the strip fuse (30 amp) outside the fuse box in a tootsie roll sized clip case by the strut mounts. In between the fuse box and strut mount. If not you may need a regulator or new blower motor.
