First thing is to check oil level, and add oil if needed but yes, call dealer also and explain. Let us know what they say.

1999 buick lasabre turns over but wont start

Fuel mixture issue, several possible causes except the starter which uses electricity from the battery to spin the cylinders and eliminate static inertia. It could be flooded, out of fuel, bad MAP, etc. 1999 is old but probably still modern enough that it is fuel injection and not spark plugs. My Prizm is from 1999. It's junk but will last another 120K miles.

2003 Buick lesabre ticking noise

I would take it back. If camshaft is damaged, it will be expensive fix. Lifters going bad at 88k indicates neglect.

Think i have a bad lifter in my 2000 buick lasabre,it was riding fine then all of a sudden its making a ticking sound on top! how difficult is it to replace the lifters?

Quite a bit of work--this is a pushrod engine. You need to remove the fuel rail and both upper and lower intake manifolds. Then both valve covers. Loosen the rockers until you can slip them off the pushrods. Pull the pushrod off the lifter to replace it. You may have to rotate the crankshaft a bit to get all the lifters up to where you can pull each one out. I can send more detailed instructions including torque values if you decide to do it.

My wife just inherited a1999 Buick LaSabre from her aunt who just passed away. The car has not been started or driven in 4 years. We want to be sure we do the right things to "bring the car back". Should...

I would take it to a qualified mechanic before attempting to drive it home...
Esspecially if home is more than a hundred miles away (AAA+ covers upto 100 miles free towing).

Sudden oil leak and engine noise

It looks like you drove your car with no oil in your engine, unfortunately you should have stopped the moment you started to hear the "rapping noise" since you could have severely damaged your engine. If the noise continues even if you have a normal oil reading you most likely would have to overhaul your engine since by driving it oil dry several parts may have resulted damaged.
