08 Base?,
engine (2.4?)
(turbo/non-turbo?)
miles?
how long have you owned it?

Is it a real clicking sound or could it possibly be a periodic squeak?

If it makes the noise when you are stopped and in gear, does it make the noise when you are moving and accelerating? Which side does it appear to be coming from (front/back/left/right)?

This would all help.
Thank you. It's a 2.4 non-turbo with around 120,000 miles. I've owned it for a little over a year now. I'm fairly positive it's a loud clicking noise. It never changes pattern and always clicks at about the same speed. I can't pinpoint the location but it's definitely coming from the front of the vehicle. I notice it when I'm in drive, and it goes away when I accelerate (or if it's making the noise anymore I can't hear it).

For example, I was in a drive thru yesterday. I had the car in drive and my foot on the brake. I could hear the noise while the car was stopped and as I coasted it forward. However, the moment I put it in park the noise went away. It will regularly do that, without fail I know the noise will disappear if I put it in park.

Also, the car idles roughly and drives pretty rough as well. I'm far from an expert when it comes to car mechanics but I know it shouldn't be idling THAT roughly.
