Hello fellow two-fivers. Just purchased a 2002 ES with 94,000 miles. Never owned a Mazda before so I figured I'd join the club. Anything I should inspect/look out for/replace out of the gate? It seems to run good but I have no reference. Seems like a louder than normal ticking from the top of the engine. It sat for a period of time in an old man's garage, not sure for how long. I've heard that can create the ticking noise from lack of oil but idk.
Please link me to previous threads that cover what I need to know or help me out here. Thank you!
