    score?

    bought a 99 blazer for $400 today, guy just put a set rebuilt heads on it and wants to sell it because it is making a ticking sound in the top end, my determination is it just needs a valve adjustment, score?

    $3,000 worth of parts/scrap or 2 hours of work and resell it for $1,800




    craigslist ad:
    1999 Chevy blazer runs and drives I think a rod may be going out. It does make a slight ticking noise but I can still drive it. It's white, power everything, ac works. Has heated side mirrors but one is broken. 500.00

    hek adjust em and find out ; ) there's ways of getting closer to the sound like using a piece of garden hose to listen in different areas

    Could also be a piston slap but that still won't sound like a rod.
    Or maybe check the oil and see if there is any gummed up. If there is then you might have a slugged up lifter.

    Some exhaust leaks make a tick that make it sound like a worse case scenario.
