There is a clicking noise in the front of the car that occurs while driving. I thought it was the steering, but it happens as I'm driving straight too. I had my oil changed and tires rotated today, but the mechanic said he didn't know what it was. A code P1443 came up,with no DTC definition found.

The car will not always start unless you spray it with starting fluid.

Ignition chime does not go off when car started unless I GENTLY and minutely, move the ignition clockwise after starting car. Opening and closing doors does not do the trick. Will come back on if I use headlights or use blinkers. Can turn car off while in drive. Will replacing the ignition key warning switch (11A127 Ford $23.89 part)do the trick? If so, where is it located and how do I do it myself? Is there a simpler fix? It's driving me crazy. I'm lucky. First time I've had this problem in almost 13 years. Thanks!

There is a "popping" noise when I slightly turn the wheel left of right fairly slowly, as in just making the normal small corrections while driving on the road, the popping sound will occur. It may be the squeaking sound already mention but this sounds more like popping.
