Check the two screws "srarter bolts" as they get lose on these type of cars and the fly wheel makes a clicking sound a bit like if you were low on oil.

Engine Oil

You can check your owners manual to make sure, also the oil cap on the valve cover usually has the recommended type stamped into the plastic.
Most of the time 5w-30 or 10w-30 is ok.

My 1997 buick park avenue 3.8L is making a noise i guess inside the valve cover like a rattling sound but does not effect my performance yet

Is it full of oil? Lifters will pump down if the engine is low on oil or the pickup screen is clogged.

Supercharger is making a knocking noise at idle. Is this normal or is something wrong?

Something wrong, common noise when the bearing is warn and should be be driven till bearing is replaced. Internal supercharger parts may break loose and run through the engine causing expensive repairs such as engine replacement other then the supercharger.
Thank you for using fixya, and be safe.

Buick Park Avenue rear suspension pump noise

You may have to replace it but money wise it is a lot of times cheaper to convert over to standard shock/strut suspension than it is to buy the pump

2001 grand prix gt freaking out!

Hello and yes this is a major noise. I would check your oil now right before you ever start the oil again. This noise may have been your engine locking up from really low oil levels and excessive heat from a lot of driving. If this is fine contact me again and we will address more problems if their is more. Thank You.
