IMSA's two-day test at Sebring International Raceway was topped by Wayne Taylor Racing's No. 10 Cadillac DPi-V.R. From the four sessions spread across Thursday and Friday, Jordan Taylor posted the fastest time of the event with a lap of 1m49.600s.
Despite IMSA's efforts to slow the Rolex 24 at Daytona-winning Cadillac model through Balance of Performance changes made leading into the test, all three factory DPi-V.R entries combined to run 1-2-3 in every session. (Decrease in air flow, fuel capacity, refuelling rate).

The place that did the oil change should be involved in this oil / lifter / rod ( whatever )problem. Way too coincidental it happened after the oil change. Did it make the sound when you started it at the oil change place and drove it home, or was it the next day or several days after?
that is not carbon buildup. That is metal on metal somewhere.
I would pursue it with the company because it was not doing that before. It may have been run with no oil in it. God only knows what could have happened
But I did take it back to the shop and he said it might be lifters. I have chickened out and not let it warm up all the way.. I just think it's gonna blow a piston from my block or something. I haven't started it in like 2 weeks. I was reading something interesting and could it be carbon build up? Just a thought. Again thanks for replying.
Jan, Does anybody in the Cadillac Club over there need a water pump belt for a Northstar? I have a leftover GATES (US/made in Mexico) Part Number K030245 Micro-V that is brand new, never used. Would gladly mail it to you for free if you PM me.
Looks like former part number may be 3PK625.
I no longer need it since my purchase of a MB E350 4matic.
