My 2007 sts cadillac is ticking and I've found oil on garage

Customer Question

My 2007 sts cadillac is ticking and I've found oil on garage floor in front of car. Have had the vehicleaning in the dealership many times and each time they day something different. Started with engine light and $4100 later they determined it was 2 wheel hubs and shocks. Paid the bill and light is back on with tc on now as well. Now they ate saying it's the brain of the car. Sounds horrible which was not the case before.
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: The front I told them I thought it was timing chain and service guy insisted it couldn't be
JA: Are you fixing your STS yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've not done anything yet but Fessenden and I've found this page
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I've researched a little because I'm a female feeling like these guys are Simply taking me for a ride. They had my car for 2 weeks aND then again n again every Saturday for 2 months. Took it in last week for the headlight replacement n tools them the lights were on again and at closing time I was told the light hadn't yet been installed and the car is worse then it's ever been. They did say I was low on oil

Allegedly they did put oil in it and asked if I wanted to make another appt. My service repair log on this car is now about 3 inches thick. All miles are highway miles. I drive a minimum of 100 miles to and from work
