1. When engine cranks and would not start, you would need to test if it is fuel or ignition sparks that is missing.
When does this occur? After prolonged parking? Immediately after stopping? During Hot weathers? In the morning? Is the Check Engine Light Indicating?
Click the " First things To Check " link to get an idea what to look for.
2. Get the propeller shaft U-joint checked. If any is stiff or out of balance due to wear, vibrations would occur.
3. To check for noise problem, you would need a visual inspection. Look out for worn bushes, rust around bushes would be an indication of bad bushes. The most common cause for clacking noise over minor road uneveness are usuallly due to bad struts or its mount, bad upper arm, torsion arm radius arm or stabilizer links/bushes.
4. If the squeek is from the brakes, check the pad quality. Some pads quality would produce squeeks.
