also car have funny clicking sound
Expert:  Scott W. replied 13 days ago.

The clicking sound concerns me with 260,00 miles, it could be exhaust leak or maybe valve train noise. This clicking may also be the reason the engine misfires, with 260000 miles these engines don't last forever, you may want to look for a different engine or vehicle as the repairs will grow as the vehicle age and mileage increases. Sometimes it is cheaper to get a newer vehicle than keep fixing and repairing. However if you want to fix this one, I would have the noise inspected first, then check all the ignition coils as these are the most common for this vehicle to be bad. If you need specific repair information, let me know I can get this also.
