Engine ticks on a regular beat in tune with the rpm of the engine indicates a loose / burnt manifold gasket on a particular cylinder or a cracked manifold near a particular cylinder. It could also be a loose/ blown head gasket at the cylinder that is coughing at idle.

It sounds like computer has put you bike into limp home mode or safety mode to protect the engine. What warning lights do you have if any come on? it sounds like a sensor has either malfunctioned or has done its job properly and picked up something wrong like, temp sensor, oxygen, oil pressure, mass air flow sensor etc. Either way when something is out of the norm form the sensor inputs to the bikes computer it will often limit the revs on the bike putting it into limp home mode to protect the engine.

I personally would be getting a mechanic to put it on a diagnostic machine. If the computer has caused the bike to go into limp mode, your mechanic will more than likely be able read a fault code from your computer to point you in the right direction as to the root cause of this fault.

My 1998 jimmy runs rough the first 3 to 5 minutes it running and makes a ticking noise. After that it runs normal.

Ticking could be your lifters. If it is a bad ticking then you could have thrown a rod but that should be noticeably louder. If you are using a fuel or oil treatment I recommend Lucas additives. It is going to take a few tanks of adding this in to have a lasting effect. One time just won't do it.

if its a ticking noise then its probably a lifter noise from age and mileage or none scheduled maintenance. on your next oil change you can try running an oil system cleaner through your engine but this is not something to be overly concerned about.

Ticking is a loose valve, needs valve adjustment. Oil on spark plug is most likely a bad piston ring. Which goes in conjunction with shudders when stopped. Sometimes you can see this by running the car for a few minutes, then open the oil fill cap and smell, if it smells like gas or exhaust then its definitely bad rings. Ultimate test would be to pressure test the cylinders.

Hi Anonymous, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.

2007 victory jackpot ticking and cough from one cylinder

Sounds like there may be a problem with the emissions control system. The rubber hoses tend to crack where they attach to the frame/airbox. Also, stop using fuel cleaners and oil conditioners in your victory. They will not do anything to help your bike.

A ticking noise in motor

Usally it's a stuck or colasped lifter. You can check your local parts store for oil additives that may unstick the lifters, often you'll have to replace the lifters. Also check oil level and oil pressure.
