SOURCE: tappet valve noise

Heavy oil like 20w50 usually isn't the answer for collapsed lifters. Ticking usually happens when the oil supply to one or more of your lifters is compromised. If all your lifters are tapping it is probably your oil pump or its screen. If one lifter is tapping it is probably dirt or a blockage in that lifter's oil supply. Replace your oil with the correct weight oil and try Sea Foam engine treatment. Don't expect instant results. It can take a while to unstick a blockage in those tiny passages. Keep your oil clean.

SOURCE: how do I get to my fuel pump on my 1997 cadillac

It could be the fuel pump relay or fuse, most likely it's the fuel pump. Here is a link to some information on getting the gas tank out to replace the pump:
The pump runs about $250.00.

Can be alot of causes. Most common:

Egr clap closed - doesn t allow air intake - car also blows black smoke while cranking.

Fuel intake
- low pressure fuel pump - located inside the fuel tank - may be burnt
- high pressure fuel pump - engine bay - also may be burnt
- not enough fuel inside the tank
- fuel leaks before reaching injectors


Hope it helps

Remove of a fuel pump ring on a 2001 cadillac catera

If it is a metal ring with tabs, you tap the tabs with a screwdriver and small hammer and turn it to release.

How many miles do I have left when the gas light starts blinking on a cadillac catera 2000

You have about 3 gallons in the tank, so that menas about 50 miles is safe. Never run this car out of gas, you will damage the electric fuel pump inside the gas tank, low fuel/no fuel overheats the pump because the gasoline cools it while it is running.

It runs but after shutting it down it wont start for a few days

I have the same problem right now , if it wont start have someone turn it over and beat on the fuel tank with a rubber mallet if it fires up you gotta replace the pump, if it doesnt fire up check the fuel pressure, the test port is behind the motor. a fuel pump can be over $200 but I know where you can get 1 new for $60
