My Cadillac deville it's making a ticking noise back top left of the engine

with that low mileage will assume its a newer model and not a classic
what year is it

ticking noise with low oil most likely the hydraulic tappets
they can be replaced

only older models are old school manual adjusted tappets

any other problems with the caddy
is it being serviced regularly ?
need to check for engine oil leaks or why the oil was low
maybe a oil pump or oil filter check

find another mechanic and get his diagnosis
a cylinder compression test and engine oil pressure test
is done before any engine rebuild would be considered

unless run without engine oil or totally over heated
52 000 miles on any cady motor it is no where near and engine rebuild

the tappets

Why won't transmission engage after an oil line blew?

Most likely the fluid level is low. You need to check the fluid level with the vehicle running on most models and add as neccessary

Subaru outback knocking noise and no power

the low/no oil has caused bearing failure
repairs will reveal that you need new bearings,
rod and possible new crankshaft if the damage is severe
it comes as a cost for not doing the simple practice of not checking oil and water levels at least weekly

Motor sounds like a bunch of Indians trying to get out.

sounds to me like you could have damaged the oil pump, running low on oil can cause numerous things to fail.. possibly spun the rod bearings and they are beating on the crank. I wouldn't start it, but if the noise is in the bottom I would drop the oil pan.

My red oil light game on in my 2005 equinox added 2 quarts of oil because it was low and it was making a ticking noise. Is my engine damaged?

i think you caught it just in time the ticking noise was the hydraulic tappets by the description and if it is now running ok then leave well alone and check the oil every week as well as all the other levels .

Oil light came on and there was a moaning tapping noise....... then the check engine light came on... then there was only a slight tapping sound... i added a qt of oil and tried to drive the car home and...

Was the oil low before you added any? What computer check? You went to a shop to have it scanned? Have the code issues repaired first then move on to the noise issues. Not a very new car I hope your not the original owner because you should not have these problems if you maintained it over the years and don't have 250,000 miles on it. If that's the case get rid of it
