Re: ef falcon won't start HELP!!

check plug by pulling out of distributor and turn engine over. If it fires you good on 1 part. Check to see if you have gas, fuel pump coming and cuting off is important if fuel is being pump. Could still be faulty. If you have fire and gas try to listen for back fire. this indicates jump time.

If I understand your post correctly... it won't turn over and that is when you hear the clicking noise. If so, I would suspect weak battery or bad connection. Have you tried to jump start it? If so, what happened?
