Question about 2000 Pontiac Sunfire
Hi due to the age of the vehicle i would say you need the lifters replacing this is a big job and for the age of the car it may not be worth doing, as long as your car is running ok and not knocking i would leave it as it is.
to replace the lifters you have to remove the cam/s and have the timing belt changed and the timing set back up so it is quite a big job and will involve new gaskets and seals for the cam as well as new lifters and new timing belt, its a lot of money to spend and if you cant do the work yourself then its gona cost a lot in labour charges.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I suggest that you change the oil and use a decent but inexpensive brand, along with marvel oil. Run it like that for about 1,000 miles, drain it then add better oil, new filter and any treatment (I like lucas and marvel...they both do their job) Don't let oil change intervals go much above 3500 miles, unless using synthetics..
