Noticed a clicking sound when breaking and taking off. It disapated with acceleration. Two days later it wouldn't turn over, making the same clicking sound while trying to start it.
When i drive it sounds like a belt churring. Then while the car is in drive and im driving i just press on the gas and nothing happens but if i press real hard over and over then it will begin driving again
When I step on the gas the light disappears and comes back if I slow down or stop .

My car has overheated two times so after letting it sit for a few days I tried adding water in the radiator and I saw it was leaking in two places the side the bigger leak was close to the radiator and the smaller leak kind of looked like it was antifreeze I put aleast a gallon of water in radiator but it did not fill it. I would like to get an idea of what the possible problems might be and an idea of what those problems might cost thank you for your help
What seems to make the problem better or worse? when I let it cool for about 15 min both times overheated I was able to drive it about 2 or 3 miles
How long have you had this problem? 1 week

I take compression test with different results every time. Just put timing belt in and water pump. I set timing it started drove it ,ran great then when owner drove it it made a pop noise and didn't start back checked my work it was fine but did a compression test and won't have compression in cylinders at consisting testing one will have then 3 will have and 124 don't or 2 has and 4 has but 1 and 3 don't do another compression test and get different results
In one or two cylinderso then do another compression test and won't have compression in that cylinder but have in the other two or no compression in 3 cylinderso but one. Do another test and get different results
