I had stored my rover for three years and it ran fine then,but recently when i started it the oil light came on and the lifters are clattering,it maybe something else clattering im not sure.I changed the oil and cranked the motor with coil wire off to circulate the oil before i started it.could my oil pump screen be clogged from the car sitting so long?
