Engine Performance problem
2000 Lincoln LS V8 Automatic
I have a 2000 Lincoln Ls it makes a tapping noise when I start it up. It is drivable but I haven't driven it in about a month.I took it to a garage when it first started making the noise they told me the timing chain was going bad. I have had a few other mechanics tell me if the timing chain was going bad the car would not start. The first mechanic told me that I would be better off replacing the engine, because if I replace the chain I will have to replace the engine later.
