I ask the same question to GM and they told me that it is a cold motor piston slap and should go away once the motor is warmed up. The garage told me that it is normal and not to worry.

The loud tapping sound can be caused by a complete heating of the engine. Worn tappets can also cause the tapping sound.

There are several reasons that can cause your 1995 Buick Century to quit running. The most common reason is a lack of fuel. A bad fuel pump can cause the engine to quit running.
