Default 3800 Question!

OK then engine is the 3.8 3800 (balanced 60deg.)
-the car has been sitting for a long time (week+) and when I started it today no juice... so I turned it over a bunch of times... then I got my other car and boosted it...but theres a ticking noise comming from the engine. When I rev it. It speeds up... is this a stuck lifter? and how much to fix it? I cant sell a car that sounds like that.
