Hi there. One of the best services we offer is called a pre-purchase inspection. Although it’s designed to be completed before someone buys a used car, it still can be very helpful in identifying problems with the vehicle and determining what services you car might require. The tune-up of replacing spark plugs, wires, fuel filters, air filter and cleaning fuel system components is a very good idea anytime you purchase a used car, but you might want to have a professional mechanic inspect the car first. The ticking sound and oil light are very concerning as they might be related.
