What is the cost of a 2008 Cadillac CTS Engine knock repair?
I am trying to purchase a 2008 Cadillac CTS, when inspecting the vehicle, it has a loud knocking noise, after running for a bit the noise will quiet down, then get loud again, the volume is not consistent. The seller claims a mechanic inspected it and believes it is a collapsed hydraulic lifter that needs to be extracted and replaced. I believe the sound may be a knocked rod and the seller went down to $2800. If I were to get this, what would the cost of the repair be for a lifter repair or a knocked rod? Thanks!

allow to rebuild the complete motor as a buyer, theres no way to know until its pulled apart.why bother buying a dunger buy a vehicle that doesn't need anything done to it if the car has had the gutts driven out of it more things will break.

Installing a rebuilt short block is the only safe way to go. Minimum expense of $4,000.

A collapsed lifter and a rod knock are two different sounds. Stay away from the car!
