You may have a shorted starter solenoid or simply a bad ground conection. make sure that your negative side of the battery is in tight.

Tick in motor with a lot of blowback coming from oil cap has started making a whining noise. not the knock sensor. could it be the oil pump?


The ticking may be coming from the valves, and or, the rocker arms, and or, the lifters. I have a 1996 Chevy Cavalier that has valve train noise and has 230,000 miles on it and is still going. If you are taking the oil cap off when the engine is running, you will see oil spitting out of it, since the engine is lubing the top end. Most vehicles have a pressure gauge on the instrument panel, and or, an oil light, which would show pressure problems. Try to isolate where the ticking is coming from by using a mechanics stethoscope, or a screw driver to your ear. The handle part of the screw driver goes to your ear of course. Place the scope or screw driver blade close to where the tick is coming from and you will hear the ticking get louder the closer you get to it.

I have a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer and recently everytime I start it up, I hear this ticking noise that appears to be coming from under the driver's side dash... Please help.. No money to fix


It is probably a relay clicking that is going to go out in the near future. If you have a problem with the chevy down the road, first thing to do is check your relays under the dash with a cheapo ohmmeter or muti-tester and check for resistance
