What is my broken 01 Cobra worth?

I wanted to ask from other mustang enthusiasts what my car is worth. I am an original owner of a white 01 Mustang Cobra. The car is stock with the exception of an aftermarket hood, clutch, and rims. It has 75,000 miles and the problem is that my engine is making a clicking sound upon ignition, the car is drivable, but I am suspecting that the vehicle needs a major motor repair. The car is in very good shape outside of that problem. What do you guys think?

It really depends.. a lot of things could make a ticking sound.. could be a rocker, could be a timing chain tensioner failed, could be a cracked exhaust manifold...

Does the sound only happen on cold start? or any time the engine is running? does the sound go away after the car runs for a little bit?

The sound is the most audible upon start up but it still continues, it is hard to hear after start up , but it still persists. I wouldnt be surprised it the engine was severely damaged, as I have never heard such a clanking noise come from the motor.

Re: What is my broken 01 Cobra worth?

two things, what is the real issue with it? might be simple might be expensive~ if you can fix that then you have a good condition vehicle.

The second thing is the condition overall of the car, if its not been taken care of go with low kbb if its been taken care of pretty good, regulary kbb, and if its REALLY in great shape then high kbb.

Re: What is my broken 01 Cobra worth?

After getting an oil change my car started to make a clicking noise, I checked for oil and none registered. I am sure the lack of oil has led to the noise. I did have the car towed to a shop and they did say they would have to tear apart the motor to find out what is wrong, and at that point I might as well have the engine re-built. Quite honestly, I haven't a clue what price range it would be in. The only comparison that I have seen is a guy on ebay selling a 97 cobra with 82k needing a rebuild, he was offered $4100. I would need enough to get an ok car though

I would get the motor rebuilt is fairly cheap. Definetly cheaper than buying a new car.

How long after the oil change was this, and where did you have the oil changed?
