Just a TIP - if you car suddenly ---dies at speed in gear--- Do Not Try To start the car until you are at a complete…"
"I would check the engine compression to see what it looks like. The "lifter noise" could very well be something more nefarious depending upon the severity of the backfire. No telling what damage (if any) was done when the…"
"Did you try to start the car when it died while rolling in gear to the side of the road --that would cause a backfire I blew up a new muffler doing that
Did the lifter noise settle down and go away after a few minutes of running?
Drove my car to work today and when i went to lunch she just up and stopped running.

I recently took my car to a “Cadillac” “Specialist here in Los angles CA.
After leaving my car to diagnose my steering column for not shifting properly. I get this txt from the shop owner.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed.
I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.
