Question about 1998 Buick Century
Lifters can be easily replaced but it may be something else that is the problem. The first thing to do is get the oil pressure checked. If it's in the mid to high 20's then that is low.. Also get a compression test done. If both are low then the engine is wearing out and you would be chasing good money after bad by fixing the lifters.
A heavier oil like 15W-40 or 20W50 should quiet them down. You could also try an additive like Lucas. If you don't want to spend any large amount of money on the car it may be time to consider replacing it. Hope this helps.
