"the engine it does not burn any oil but there is a lifter noise so the engine tics when running"

Lifter noise? Do these engines even have lifters? I thought the cams pushed on the valves?
"for the engine it does not burn any oil but there is a lifter noise so the engine tics when running for the transmission it shifts and drives secong gear shifts a little hard the transmission fluid is dirty could use a flush. For this car to be perfect it will need some engine work"

Gee, must have been diagnosed by the same dealer that did mine before the cam sprocket gave out the following week! Nope, even I knew that it didn't have lifters though the service writer asked me to verify my ASE certification before he would write up an order stating "it has a loose cam sprocket which would be next to impossible to occur on a car of this age".
Your reply to him should be:
"it is not a matter of me verifying my ASE certification, but it IS a matter of how did YOU ever get an ASE certification in the first place."
