Norther VA - Good shops for engine work/repairs?
Does anyone know of a good shop to have lifters deleted/replaced in the northern Virginia area (the closer to Centreville, VA the better)? This can be a GM dealer or a custom shop. My main concern is getting the work done right.
I have a 2009 GT with ~70,000 miles (I am the original owner). My engine is suffering from the dreaded lifter tick (I'm 99.9% certain of it). The car has been sitting for months now(I start it up and drive it around the block every few weeks) and I'm ready to get the problem resolved. I actually drove around with the tick for a few months(thinking it was just a belt problem at the time) until eventually getting a SEL, and paying about 1k to have a fuel system issue repaired (probably caused by metal shavings from the lifter).
I've got to get this bad boy back on the road.
