Check your throttle body sensor, and clean your throttle body with a good cleaner like CRC. Also check each of the plugs for spark.

Clicking, how about like snapping? If so need to check cap, rotor, plug wires, plugs, and coil.

Sounds like one of your spark plug wires is arcing replace spark plug wires and plugs.
