- We Hear An Engine Lifter Noise Under The Hood
Before we get into the main description. I'd like to
make something very clear. This car, although it appears to
have been well kept by looking under the hood and driving
it, does have an issue with it. We
did note upon our test drive that once the engine gets hot
we hear what appears to be a pretty good lifter noise. We
go through far too many cars to be able to spend enough time
with this car to pinpoint the cause of the problem, so we
are really unsure what is causing it. From what we've heard
this appears to be a common issue for these cars, but we're
unsure how to go about fixing it. We're also unsure if its
a lifter causing the noise, but the best way to describe the
noise we're hearing is to characterize it as a lifter
noise. We also noted the check engine light was illuminated
and the car appears to lightly hiccup at at highway speeds
when its in overdrive meaning that it hesitates lightly when
you give it gas. The good news is that other
than that the car drives great, and we feel that the car is
more than nice enough for you to invest some time into
getting it fixed. Since this car
is 8 years old the supply of engine parts are a dime a dozen
so it shouldn't be a big issue to get this problem
addressed. Please be advised that I am not a
mechanic, and I can not say how long the engine will work
properly with this problem so if you would be making a long
trip back home in this car please keep that in mind but
other than the noise and the light hiccups at highway speeds
the engine does appear to be operating normally.
Today is your lucky day! Here is a great opportunity to
acquire a very nice Taurus SHO! Now you can impress your
friends by having this very powerful V8 SHO Taurus! The
mileage is quite reasonable for a 1997 model with only at
95,701, but don't forget, this car has the reliability of
Ford behind it, and 95,000 miles isn't anything on a Ford!
In fact, this kind of mileage is normally considered low on
older models! The car comes in a great color combination,
Maroon with Tan cloth inside, very attractive indeed! This
car has a spotless history report! The car has spent all but

did note that the car's antenna appears to be missing which
may affect radio reception on weaker stations. The exterior
