TRY TAKING OFF TANK AND FLUSHING WITH SIMPLE GREEN. CARB IS PROBABLY CLOGGED SO I DON'T KNOW IF CARB CLEANER CAN FLUSH OIL OUT. A REBUILD KIT IS ONLY 10-12 DOLLARS AND REALLY EASY. JUST DISSASSEMBLE CARB,PAY CLOSE ATTN AND BUY A CAN CARB CLEANER IN THE CAN AND FLUSH OUT EVERY HOLE IN CARB,WEAR SAFETY GLASSES AND DON'T TURN MIXTURE SCREWS. KIT COMERS WITH NEW GASKETS,BUY A PRIMER BULB WHEN YOU GET TO SMALL ENGINE SHOP OR OR GOOD LAWN MOWER SUPPLY SHOP. YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE CARB THERE WITH YOU ALSO. I DID THREE ALREADY FOR BAD FUEL,REALLY EASY,JUST ATTN TO DETAIL. OH,REMOVED PLUG SPRAY OFF AND SCREUB OIL OFF AND GET A LIGHTER AND HEAT OFF GUNK OFF ELECTRODE. GOOD LUCK!

Your problem may be one of the following:
First check or just replace the fuel filter. Usually located under the car in front of the rear axle, drivers side.
Next, the fuel pump may be worn out. Usually they get loud or stop working (running).
Next, check the fuel pressure regulator. Usually located on the front fuel rail, drivers side.
Is the vacuum line attached? Not leaking or rotted?
Also, do you smell a strong fuel odor when it won't start? May be one or more stuck-open injectors, or the coil pack is bad.
Checking these in the order listed will more than likely fix your problem.
The clicking noise indicates the battery can no longer run the starter, which also means the fuel pump won't run either.
It could be a fuel issue. How old is the fuel filter? Can you hear the pump run for a few seconds when you turn the key on? Try turning the key to ON without trying to start engine three times waiting for the pump to stop running each time. Then try to start the engine. If it starts, Its a form of Vapor lock caused by the extreme heat we have had lately, and a weak fuel pump.
If none of this works, try a new fuel filter first. From there have someone check the fuel pressure regulator and then the pump. If you are in need of a new pump, take my word for it and spend the money to get one from a Dealer, and not from your favorite parts store. Most parts store parts are made in China and they are JUNK.
