My Flux Capacitor needs replacing

I think I might be getting hosed. My truck's inspection was due and I ran to the local oil change place to get it taken care of. The guy came back and told me that it didn't pass. When I asked why, he went into this weird explanation of how the Flibity gibit wasn't working correctly. I say Flibity gibit because he used some Acronym that I had no clue about. Finally I got him to explain that some seal was not pumping air in the right manner and it was causing my emissions to under perform, and in Dallas, that is a big problem.

Then he was showing me what parts he was going to replace and then found that some of the wire casings had been bitten through by mice. So I need to get them replaced. Finally, I just had to leave the truck and get the mechanic to drive me home.

It sucks to be auto deficient.
That is all,

Do you plan to become less auto deficient? If so, let me know because my truck makes this ticking noise when I start it, but it goes away once the truck warms up. Any ideas?

And please don't tell me it is the Flibity gibit! I hear those things are super expensive and I just don't have the money to replace it!

Ironically, I think I heard something on the radio about how that is somewhat normal. Though I don't recall what reason there was for it.
