The first [& easiest] solution is to change your PCV valve.if that dosen't make a difference,it could be valves need adjustment or a problem w/ a valve lifter.

Sounds like a rotating electrical device not connected to the drive belt, like a rad fan. Not sure if this engine has a vacuum pump, but that could also be what's making the noise.

99 GMC Suburban -- While driving engine cut

Does it tick then a bit later tick again? If so that's most likely an automatic circuit breaker that you hear. If you have a short in the wiring the circuit breaker kicks out (tick) and shuts that circuit down, after a minute or so the circuit breaker cools enough to reset itself (tick again). That would explain the truck shuting down. The circuit breaker will continue to reset itself until the battery goes dead, I would suggest disconnecting the battery until you can get it to a shop. You have a short in the wiring somewhere. Good Luck!

If you drive rough roads regularly, you may have a blown shock absorber. You can test it to get a little idea of whether this has happened by using an oldtimer's method that isn't very precise but can help:
From the front of the car, cause each side (one at a time) to bounce by pressing then letting go repeatedly on a fender. When you let go, do it at the bottom of the bounce and note what the fender does. If it rises once, falls, then stops, it is probably OK. If it kind of fades away, then the shock isn't having any influence on it and must be replaced. I should say both should be replaced; never only one.  As warned, this isn't an absolute test but you can get some kind of a feel for the shocks this way.
