Engine noise and poor performance on 96 sport
Hey Everybody I'm new to the forums! I am the proud owner of a 1996 jeep cherokee sport I have been experiencing problems with performance; lower mpg and acceleration. My engine is making a dull ticking noise that becomes more pronounced when I throttle. Sounds dry and loud. Also the first start of the day is rough and I the engine sputters a bit before firing up. I was just hoping someone could help me diagnose the problem cuz I hate getting bent over by mechanics. Thank you!
