Hemi issues, not running right help !

Help guys i was on my way home and my jeep wasnt running righ, i had just got gas maybe it was bad gas ? but my engine was ticking when i opened the hood, and my exhaust didnt sound right. I was in traffic on the parkway and when i would pass i would hit the throttle and it didnt have the same response. Help ! any feedback is appreciated.

Re: Hemi issues, not running right help !

Do you have a diablo trinity or a way to monitor the engine?
Any codes?
As for the ticking did you check the oil level?
Serviced recently? What was done?
Battery dying?
There is a lot that could be going on in many different systems...or it could just be a freak problem that will go away...no idea man.

Drive for a bit and see what happens.

Re: Hemi issues, not running right help !

Check your vac lines.
If it's ticking very bad could be a bad MDS lifter.
Use the scanner to look at your O2 function and fuel psi/pump function.

Let us know.
