Question about 2007 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS

Open Question

2006 SS Trailblazer /ticking in motor first, now a metel sound?

A ticking started in the motor under higher rpm's? It only has 29,000 miles, So, I took it to a Dealership dropped it off. They said they could not hear it. I picked it up on a Friday night and drove 1/4 of the way home, the sound became worse? It was to late to turn back and I had the car towed home to be safe. I am not sure what to tell them, and should I go to a diffrent Dealership!

sounds to me like your coil packed it in or your timing belt ( chain ) has jumped a tooth. If you have access to a scanner run a diagnostic check on your car to see if it comes up with any trouble codes.

the first place to start is the flashing engine lite. that means cylinders are not firing at all or improperly and driving it like that for even short period could cause heavier damage. particularly valves and cat converter(s) the computer really needs to be scanned for codes in order to proceed. did the oil lite come on before or after engine quit. after engine quit would be normal cause it stalled. its possible that it needs spark plugs and/or coils. or more

My first guess would be the front u-joint on the drive shaft. Try twisting the u-joint to see if there is any play, which there shouldn't be. If the u-joint is OK, have the transmission checked out at a reputable shop. There could be a problem with the torque converter, the valve body, or the bands. You didn't say whether this was a 4 wheel drive or not, but I doubt that the problem is with the transfer case. Let me know what you find.

Well, it could be a couple of different things. The "jump timing" theory would have a poor engine performance and engine miss associated with it. So I don't believe this is the problem.
If the ticking or knocking sounds like it is coming from the top of the engine, you have a clasped lifter, bent push-rod or rocker arm problem.
Is the noise present when the engine is cold or hot?
Make sure the oil does not look milky.
Let me know.
Regards,

2002 trailblazer LT (EXT) motor revs up at start-up , seems too high for my thoughts , then comes back down after a couple of seconds , mind you , it only does it after sitting overnight


It would be a help if you could let us know the idle speed when cold?
Vehicles usually have a higher tick over when they;ve been standing and are cold. It would increase by a few hundred RPM and then quickly drop back to normal as the engine warms up....

Sounds like an Exhaust Manifold leak on only one cylinder. The Gasket is probably blown out. Check around where manifold is bolted to the engine. Any leaks are usually evident by a black sooty deposit.

2006 trailblazer has a loud whining sound coming from the rear. When i accelerate it gets louder. took it to the dealer they said it was the rear brakes and rotors. but i don't believe that is the problem.


Manufacturer : GENERAL MOTORS CORP.

Service Bulletin Num : 030417002 Date of Bulletin: DEC 01, 2006

NHTSA Item Number: 10001111

Component: POWER TRAIN:AXLE ASSEMBLY

Summary: WHINE NOISE FROM REAR AXLE. *TT

I just went through the same problem with my SS. It had 3000 miles on it and it was whinning while turning either left or right. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the entire rear axle. I am not the first person that I know to have this problem. I was told that there was a problem with some of the rear ends and I have had no further problems since having mine replaced.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

It sounds like you maybe low on freon and your a\c compressor is kicking in and out at lower RPM's because of low pressure,then you build enough pressure to keep it running at higher RPM's.

Ticking noise in engine


It sounds like the lifters are still sticking. Change your oil/filter then after 500 miles change it again. Since motor oil has a mild detergents, a couple of changes should hopefully remove any buildup from around the lifters. Do not use "motor flush". Even though your engine is fairly new, it may remove too much buildup and flush it onto your crankshaft bearings. You may try some marvel mystery oil also and I've heard seafoam does a good job, if you can find it. Mine started ticking after using one of the super thick oil additives. I'm still trying to flush that stuff out.

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck
