Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
Ive got a 2001 grandam se and we sumerged it in 3 ft water filled the engine then we changed the oil and after that we have a bad ticking sounds like a lifter its not a rod knock its a tick ,click sound
When a vehicle is in 3 feet of water, the electrical
is usually damaged to the point that the vehicle
The vehicle is 12 years old or more,so even without
the water in there, it has some wear & you can use google
to check for bulletins of known engine issues,but I don't
think your going to fix that, even without the water issues.
The motor would have to come apart to find the issue & you
may rebuild it & never know

you can pull the valve covers and inspect the rocker arms, but you may have a bad main or rod bearing. im leaning toward the main bearing being spun, at least.

my brother had this problem with his car, and his turn signals were acting up also... somewhere at the base of the turn signal lever there is a switch that is activated by moving the lever up (right) and down (left) and there is a type of grease inside this switch. he solved the problem by wiping a lot of this grease out of there. (after years of use, metal shavings from the circuit build up in the grease allowing the circuit to complete itself randomly, causing the clicking sound) try it out and see if it helps. might not hurt to see if you can replace that grease as well.
