Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado

1 Answer

Engine Knocking/Ticking I have a silverado with the 5.3 L engine in it that makes a ticking sound during acceleration (just like everyones). I have heard at least 10 different "reasons" for this and none of them seem to be the actual cause. The truck runs fine except for the ticking. What is going on or does anyone even know? Why isn't there something from Chevrolet about this since all silverados have this problem?

This may not be your problem, but recently we had chevy in with a ticking on acceleration that turned out to be a leak on the right hand exhaust manifold only slight but enough to make a noise when driven hard. we noticed a carbon mark around the second cylinder in. If it is a petrol engine have you checked the spark plugs are correctly torqued?

What is causing a loud ticking sound instead of a normal boat engine sound when accelerating in my boat?


One of the spark leads has come off or has chafed against something wearing away the insulation, thus the ticking sound, spark going elsewhere instead of the spark plug. Make sure the plug leads are secure and in good condition, make sure no water has entered the engine cyl head area

Ticking or knocking sounds during acceleration CAN be oil-related, but unless your car has extremely high mileage, it is doubtful. A more realistic possibility is that the fuel you are using may be at too low an octane and you are getting what is known as "octane ping". Some cheaper gasoline vendors will try to get by on this from time to time. Try changing the brand of fuel you are using, or maybe put some mid-grade in the tank rather than regular. If the problem goes away, you've found your culprit.

sounds like bad valve seats or seals do you have a oil pressure gauge on your dash.check the pressure.then check your return ports on top of the head thats giving you the problem see if the oil is returning to the oil pan.sometimes the return ports become blocked and the oil stays on top of the head.and see if the oil supply is making up to the head.hope this helps.mark

2008 oil leak and engine ticking


An engine used oil for lubrication and colling. If there is no oil then there is no lubrication. No lubrication means lots of heat and friction. Is it a ticking or banging noise? I do believe it is an ohc engine so it couldnt be a lifter ticking. It is probably a rod knocking. It so then it will more than likely need an engine

sounds like lower end bearing damage (connecting rod) when oil level drops at interstate speed a connecting rod bearing will seize very quickly thus causing the bearing to spin in the rod and enlarge clearance . that is the knocking sound you here .

Engine starts and stops ticking


Sounds like oil pressure problems to me. Check to make sure your oil level is correct. If the oil level is OK get the engine checked by a professional.
