Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Buick Century 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
On Friday I had my oil changed before a trip to DC. Everything was fine. On my return trip I started hearing a knocking sound in the engine that went faster as the engine worked harder. When I got home I took to to a mechanic who said that it's either oil blockage or the piston lifter. In either case he said it would be cheaper to just let it die. I've driven over 200miles since this noise started. It hasn't gotten any worse. How long do you think I have until it dies, or do you even think it will?
