Question about Buick Skylark
If its a 3.1 liter try this first.
Get a can of Seafoam Motor Tune which is usually available anywhere that sells auto parts and sometimes walmart or target will also carry it in there automotive section.
With the engine cold and shut off add 1/2 of the bottle to the oil. Start the engine and let run until warm or until the lifter noise has gone away. If the lifter noise stops have the oil changed and add the other half of the bottle to the clean oil. If the noise does not stop it is not a lifter noise and lilley something more severe.
I have never had seafoam not fix this complaint on any GM V-6 or V-8!
