Question about 2005 Land Rover Freelander
I have a 2005 Range Rover Freelander. I noticed a few days ago a ticking sound coming from the engine that got louder/faster with acceleration. I checked the oil and it was low, added oil and the noise was still there. I contacted a mechanic and he thought it could be a lifter, but was not sure. I can't get it in until Thurs. to be looked at. Any ideas of what it could be? And if it is a lifter what kind of bill am I looking at?
It is the lifter, they are of poor design, but changing them only last a little while cause they will start to ting again, what i do is 5 quarts of 15w-30 oil and 1 quart of transmition oil ATF. and ater the second oil change it will be like new

I doubt it is a lifter but it could be. they are of the hydralic type. it is probably one of the cheap plastic motors in the intake manifold. they always go out. a new manifold cost about 900 us.
