More than likely you have a tiny exhaust leak. Could also be a bad lifter but you would hear that at all ranges.

Hey Mart==Generally just one valve ticking wouldn't cause a power loss. It deoends on what kind of car and engine you have. It could be an injector ticking which would cause a dead miss. GoodluckJoe

look for a shorted electric motor like window motor. when the motor contacts fail they can cause the "ticking" and it drains the power constantly, even when the ignition is off.

Putting in bad fuel can cause theÊengine to buck during acceleration on a 1999 Dodge Durango. There could also be a problem with the fuel filter or dirty spark plugs.
