Timing belt tensioner pulley; if it fails, notorious on the 97, 98, it will send the engine to heaven. Was a recall but probably well out of date now.

If you are lucky, its the accessory belt idler.

97 cadillac catera noise


A good shop will tell you and often show you what you need. I'd bring it elsewhere! In the meantime, likely you have a bad "doughnut" gasket or broken manifold stud...but I'd have to look to give you a real answer , not just a guess.

Ignition coil installation


It doesn't have a coil. It has a bank of 3 coils with direct contact to the plugs.
Remove the cover on each side which is on top of the valve covers. This will expose the coil packs.
