Oil pressure gauge does not reach 40 PSI. Heard the sounds like a loud ticking coming from the engine on the passengers side. Then pressed on the gas peddle and it didn't want to add power. Ticking n


Not sure if there is a question here or not. If the pressure is always below 40 and you are hearing engine noise, chances are the oil pressure really is low. You could replace the sending unit or use a mechanical gauge to verify.

that depends on if you think the noise is coming from the motor, or the actual road noise that comes with driving , its probably the same at both speeds but sine you have less air and outside noise,, you hear it more at lower speeds. does it make the same noise when started but not moving? if you answer that yes, then its something else besides road noise, if it is no, then get your front end checked, it could be anything from a bad alignment to a bad wheel bearing, or bad brake ,

These engines are known for ticking fan clutches. If the ticking doesnt significantly increase with the engine revving, it may be the fan clutch. The clicking usually happens momentarily and dissipates, and increases only to a certain engine speed. If its an internal mechanical issue, ticking will increase simultaneously with the engine speed increase.

My 2004 Avalanche has a noise that comes from the left side of the truck. Thought it was front, now it seems like the back. It happens primarily when I go over a speed bumb but now repeats itself...


It is ideal to have the suspension checked on all the four wheels. It is possible that loose joints, faulty bearings or faulty suspension links , shock-absorbers can cause this bump and noise.
A close check individually with a visual check on the bottom with all the linkages checked for PLAY or looseness will confirm , Check the wheel bearings and brake pad settings.

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.

Could be a U-joint near failure. You will know it is a U-joint if you hear a clunk when you put it in gear. Failing U-joints will cause a lot of vibration just before they go.

My 2004 avalache started making a loud winding sound. can't tell if it's from the rear-end or the front of truck. starts to make noise when I get to 20 mph or higher. stops when I'm back below 20 mph


Look for something caught in the drive shaft - also check rear bearings and drive shaft bearings.

Sounds like you need to have a good oil change and have the mechanic give the underside a good going over. They will usually do this free as part of the oil change.

Also - check for a bad tire - sometimes the problem won't show sitting if the tire is separating on the inside and on the inside part of the tire.
I suspect a faulty tire that isn't separating until you get to speed.

Gm has a real problem with fuel tank sending units. That is what is wrong. You need a fuel tank sending unit. You can only get them aftermarket with the whole fuel pump module, but you can buy them seperate if you buy it from the dealer.
