Growling engine noise only at idle. Cam area


Take all of the belts off for a short run at idle. If the sound goes away it is pulley related, spin each pulley and listen for bearing noise, also check for play at this time.

If the noise does not go away when the motor is driving no accessories you have a more serious problem.

V-6 engine noise


You could have a worn serpentine belt, and or bad idler pully bearing or a bad serpentine belt tensioner. With that anount of miles and years in the truck, it wouldn't hurt to change all. A good thing to check if it is the belt is to spray some water on the belt while the engine is running. If the noise goes away then it's your belt and while the belt is off, it's a good time to check the pully bearings.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Engine Rattling


Try checking the heat shield on your exhaust system. You should have one over the manifold and one over your cat converter under the car.

Oil pressure light on at idle


Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.

2001 Cadillac Deville; noise after the engine starts


The whine sounds like the power steering or the alternator, as far as the idle issue goes try this clean the intake throttle body and idle speed control valve with carb spray, disconnect battery for 5 min. then reconnect and drive a few miles to reset idle strategy. The car will try to die when you spray the intake, hold the idle up to prevent that, use at least 1/2 the can of carb spray.
