Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I have a ticking in the motor, I rev up the gas pedal the ticking accelerates at the same time. Now my temperature gauge stays at 160, could this be a bad thermastat?
Most likely its the relay on your air conditioner. Ticking sounds can be anything you really need a mechanic to listen. I say relay on air conditioner because is happened on my vechile an is still there.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector. Let it sit for atleast 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get it back to it's normal operation.
If the problem still persists then the problem could be on the IACV (idle air control valve) or TPS (throttle position sensor). Have both checked and replaced if necessary. Let's just hope option number one works to cut the cost.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
