Not sure about the other problems, but the "Click, Click" sounds like the Starter Motor.

I was driving home on the interstate and check engine light came on for second day in a row. 1222 was yesterdays code. It would limit the fuel and if I dropped the RPM the problem would go away. and this repeated for about 30 miles. THEN.. it would barely go up hill from a stop. I revved it higher to get it going but when I put in gear it would fall on its face 5spd stick car. I got home and there was a distinct heat smell coming from the car. I tried to restart the car and all I got was click click click. I disconnected the battery hoping for something even jump started with a charger no good. BUT if I rolled it down the driveway and put it gear it starts right up!!!! The idle seems ok but you can hear a little popping in the tail pipe. I tried to start the car again click click click dont want to start guessing where to go next HELP!!!!
