Angry Ticking (Clicking) Noise

I too have experienced exactly what you have, just on Sunday evening, and I can't help but wonder, why is this not a mandatory recall. At the time I was returning home, on the interstate, my car began to sputter, lose power intervally, then all of a sudden the check engine light came on. The more I tried to gain power by accelerating the more the car seemed to struggle to get up the miles. Mind you, I too had heard that ticking sound, maybe a week ago, for the first time. Once the car is idled, maybe for 30 seconds, the noise stops. My check engine light did not stay on, and I was able to drive on home safely, as if nothing happened, but my boyfriend seems to think it was a case of bad (water in it) gasoline. My car now has 80,000 miles on it, with the bulk coming from interstate driving. I guess I will be going back to the dealership on Monday, seeing as this is my first issue with this car.
