Hi everyone,

I'm looking at buying a BF Fairmont Ghia Mkii. with the 5.4L V8 in it. (How many of these were there, by the way? Because I don't see many). Anyway, the main thing bothering me is what I think is a lifter noise. Was it common on that engine? The seller tells me his mechanic says its fine and you can just ignore it and live with it. An independent inspector tells me to steer clear of it because one way or another I'm going to end up pulling the engine out to replace valves, or cam phasers or whatever.

Any thoughts here? Known issue? Something to be worried about?
