Im sure auto zone could help me with that. The noise is coming from my engine. See im thinking its possible its my starter. Or maybe my pvc voulve if I spelled that right but I dont know if that has anything to do with starting up the car.

Is there a certain spot to tap on the starter an do you think there could be another possible problem on why it wont start. I thought it might be the battery but all the lights come on and I tried jump starting it but it didnt do anthing. And its got gas in it.

Tap the center of the starter motor if the starter is clicking then most likely its a bad starter.
