I recently had an oil change - car had been sluggish but it had been a while since I changed oil. Since the oil change, it seems to be acting up more. It will start fine and run fine and then seem to be 'choking' (for lack of a better word) and then be okay again. Then this morning I heard a ticka ticka sound from the engine which I have not heard before. Do I need a tune up? Help.
THanks.

Hi:
I need you to check a couple things. First, the ticking noise makes me wonder if you're low on oil. Second, I need you to take the car to a nationally recognized parts store to have the computer scanned. Most will do it for free. If there is a code stored, it will let us know if there is a problem that is recognized by the computer and what it is.

Let me know what you find.
