Question about 2001 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

2001 chevy suburban. I hear a humming noise from the engine. Engine ticks while idle for after a few minutes. Ticking goes away when I accelerate. There is a strong vibration when I accelerate in drive but starts to go away when I reach around 30-40 MPH. When I reach 50 it sounds like something in the rear is rattling.

    The rattle goes away after a split second. Also I found that in reverse the truck does not vibrate but when I shift to drive it vibrates heavily

Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

SOURCE: ticking noise and low oil pressure

DOES IT HAVE A LOT OF MILES ON IT OR MAY BE THE OIL PUMP IS IS GOING OUT? THERE IS A SPRING IN THE PUMP THAT IS A BYPASS FOR HOW HIGH PSI IT MAY HAVE BROKE THAT WILL GIVE YOU LOW PSI.

SOURCE: Rapping/ticking sound in my 2001 Chevy tracker engine.

does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should

SOURCE: Lifter ticking when I start my 1999 Chevy Tahoe

Your lifters have become clogged over the years. Its only after the oil warms up and thins out does it allow oil to "pump up" the lifters. That's why it goes quiet after 5 min. There are several different brands of additives on the market that can fix this problem ,unless you have a more serious mechanical problem, which I doubt.Check your local auto parts store for the additive. Just add it to your oil and "wham!" problem solved. Good Luck!

SOURCE: ticking when cold

It could also be the infamous "Piston Slap" common in 1999-2002's.
GM "standardized" pistons or something like that and they did not fit the cylinders tight enough. The pistons "slap" the cylinder walls and make a tapping sound for the first few minutes until the pistons expand to fit. GM would not fix it and says it does not hurt the longevity of the motor ( yeah ri--ght! ) Do a google search for piston slap.
Oil level would help if it is a lifter ticking but will do nothing if it is the pistons slapping the walls. My 02 silverado has been doing this since almost new and the above description is straight from GM and a few visits to the dealership while under warranty.

Have a specialist check out the power steering pump as it sounds like the pressure relief valve in the pump is intermittent and causing the noise.

You will have to take an oil pressure reading and compare to specifications. It could be that the pick up screen is plugged. Do not drive the car as damage to engine will occur.

Vortec 4.3 Ticking that is present at start-up and speeds up as I accelerate, what would cause this?


If you have good oil pressure, a few things come to mind, first it could be a loose rocker, secound it could be a woren or broken rocker, third it could be a weak or calaps lifter. If it sounds like its lower in the engine like around the oil pan it could be a rod or maine problem. But you say its a ticking noise witch leads me to believe its a valve trane problem.

FIAT PUNTO. Ticking for short period following start up


Definitely change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles. After you change it add a half cup of Lucas engine oil suppliment when the engine is hot.
If if goes away you know it's cam or lifter issue. If it doesn't the ticking you hear may simply be your fuel system.

Ticking Noise at Startup


Possibly a leaking hydraulic lifter. They can leak down while engine isn't running and then make a ticking noise for a while on startup. If it takes 10-15 minutes to go away, it is more likely to be a loose tappet which needs adjusting.

Ticking in engine on start up


Sounds like a hydraulic camshaft lifter that drains down overnight and takes 30 sec to pump up with oil
