Hi there. There are many possible sources of a ticking noise that eventually causes the engine to quit running. In some cases it’s a serpentine or drive belt that was loose that eventually breaks. In other instances, it can be internal engine problems; but there are usually several warning signs that will alert the driver to possible problems here. The best advice I can offer is to fill out this request to have one of our mobile mechanics complete a car is hard to start inspection.
