5w 30 is a common GM recommended oil - it has a wider ambient temperature range than (for example) 10w 30. The recommended grade is sometimes moulded into the oil filler cap that fits into the valve cover.

When i first start my truck in the morning the tapes knock for about a minute or two and then stops. why?


Hopefully it's your oil wgt is incorrect for the temp. Try changing your oil and using a good SAE 5W-30 high detergent oil and also add a pint or so of Mystery Oil as well. If that does not correct it, you could have a restricted oil passage or stuck lifter.

My 2000 gmc sierra is leaking oil on my driveway more than normal


It's not good to Switch back to Regular oil after using Synthetic. Use the High Mileage oil. It will help a Little. Still Cheaper to replace a Gasket or two than a Rebuild. Got 214,000 + Miles on my 95' Silverado and No Leaks with High Mileage Valvoline 10-40.
