  1. Thanks for all the my friends, greatly appreciated! I'm from florida, is 10w30 the heaviest I should go to? When you said change oil after 100 miles, does that mean drive it with that tapping noise? If I didnt have so much money and time invested in maintenance in this, i would have junk yard it by now. I have changed out all suspension, calipers, rotors, water pump,thermostat, alternator, coils, plugs, wires, and a bunch of sensors. When I bought it, it was from an older woman that let it sit for a long time and all the fluids were funky. The son was a mechanic and had a folder logging all the maintenance from New. On another oldsmobile forum a guy told me to check exhaust for leak and to make sure plugs were seated, he said to him it sounded like one of those? What your thought on that? Thanks again have a blessed day
  2. The oil was changed about 5 months back and only had about 450-500 miles on and then this sound started out of no where. I put the exact oil the owner guide calls for and filter, its also perfectly filled. It was actually worse when the noise first started and the 4 time I started it after to show friends and my brother the noise. Somehow after sitting a couple months it has gotten 3/4 quieter. I did empty the oil a little and added seafoam to the crank case like my brother said to, so maybe that helped ? Im not an online person so do you mind telling me what fwiw mean and lirc? Thank you guys I am very appreciative of you time and help

  5. I looked for a and couldnt find anything or anything on here about a nbody section. Do you know where I could find?Thank you
  6. The oil has around 500 miles on since the last change and it looks like new oil. No moisture under oil cap. No coolant has made its way into the oil. I will make a video of the noise tonight or tomorrow sometime. Thanks
  7. Hello I'm a new member here... I bought the car a year and half ago from original owner. Her son was a GM mechanic and had a binder of every service from 1994. When i bought it I changed all the fluids and filters, plugs and wires. It ran like a new car. So quiet i couldn't here it at idle in the car. I drove the car to work and it drove great, drove it home and the same. I start it the next morning and the motor was clattering loudly so I shut it off. The oil is full, the coolant was low about 2 cups. It didn't over heat or even get hot. What could have gone wrong over night? Its crazy it drove perfect to my house and super quiet, and the next morning its chattering. I ran it for maybe 3 seconds and shut it down. I poured seafoam in oil and started it and the same, waited till the next day to let it do its thing and start it, same noise so I shut it down fast. Should I let it run and hope it was a clogged lifter? I just dont want to ruin a low miles taken care of motor. Thanks for any help
