The guy said he had a mechanic check it and I just want to know if it is worth buying and fixing it. How much will this cost me?
My car has 89000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
The lifter is not too much of a problem, but it could be costly to replace if you are having a technician replace it. You can try changing the engine oil and filter and running a oil treatment in the engine to make the noise go away. If your budget is not including any engine noise repairs that can be expensive, then I suggest not getting this vehicle, but if you are okay with the parts replacements, then it is okay to get the vehicle. Just make sure that you perform a inspection before getting the vehicle. If you need further assistance with the engine having a lifter tapping noise, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
