Im looking at pciking up a 98' jetta GL with 121k miles for $1290 without even bartering down, but he says the hydraulic valve lifterrs are making noise, is it okay for it to drive for awhile with them making noise? i have about a 50 mile drive home if i do get it,would i need to tear it all apart to fix it, he's already order the lifters and comes with it? so is it worth it? can i make the drive home?

Thanks,
Austin

Noisy lifters shouldnt be a problem. They are probably sludged up. Should make it home fine.I would replace the camshaft while your in there.
