Customer Question

Just bought a 1996 trooper. Runs great. I love it! Four things....1)Engine stinks bad. Even though I passed emissions, it smells like I probably shouldn't have. Smell is slightly pungent/sour. What could that be and what to do to fix it? 2) The engine makes a tick sound. Not a knock, a tick. It increases/decreases with rpm. What is the common culprit and what to do to fix? 3) I want to get a tune up. What should this entail and or what should I watch for? 4) Lastly It has 132K miles. Amazing for the year. With no maintenance records, what is the first and next things I should consider doing maintenance wise? Thanks for your time. I appreciate it.
