    If the "clicking" is from the starter solenoid, I suspect it is bad and needs to be disassembled, cleaned, repaired, and reinstalled on the starter. Otherwise, buy a new solenoid. Before doing any of this, ensure battery is fully charged and terminals are clean and tight, ensure main ground is corrosion free, and ensure starter solenoid terminals are corrosion free.

    If, what you are saying is, main relay clicks, Check Engine Light stays on, engine cranks but won't start, can't hear the fuel pump run, and no spark, then you probably have a bad ECM.

Engine runs rough - a lack of power but not a hard miss - until engine warms up but car must sit for at least 18 hrs. 170,000 miles. Replaced plugs, cap rotor - no help. Distributor shaft has minor oil leak allowing oil to get inside of cap - maybe related.
