Hi. Can you please explain then clicking noise and running like crap concern a little more in detail? Does it lack power, skip at idle, is it hard to start...? etc... When does the clicking noise occur? What were the most recent codes that were retrieved?

Is it possible that the next time the noise happens you could remove the fuse box cover and try to isolate the noise. The problems you are having could be from a a failing relay.
