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.
You might want to consider my suggestion in post #3. All it takes is another person inside the Pt Cruiser and you looking at the engine to see if the engine is moving excessively backwards making clicking sounds. You will have a better chance of locating where the clicking noise is coming from.
