With out hearing it it sounds like what is commonly called piston slap.The experts say it does not cause any damage but I dont agree.If it bothers you than the only thing is a engine rebuild or an engine replacement. If it doesnt bother you that much drive it till it quits.And keep the oil changed and using a heavier weight oil might quiet it down some.

Moter knocks when i first start it then goes away


I had a chevy 2002 avalanche,2004 chevy tahoe both after 20,000 miles developed a mild lifter or slight bearing knock.When I confronted chevy with this problem they stated this was normal for the 5.3 liter v8.Being a mechanic myself didnt think this sounded right.My friend has a 2003 gmc yukon and motor sounded same way.I no longer own my chevy,But my friend still has yukon with 150,000 plus miles and yet it still knocks when you start it.this is just a problem with chevys and other gm products.

The bar on the bottom of my 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 v8 5.3L makes a noise when ever i start going forward or backwards what does that mean?


Well it sounds like something is making a noise when put under initial load, BUT what bar are you talking about? If I knew this I could solve this problem.....Please revise you question with a better description of "the bar".

I have 1997 chevy Z-71 sometimes on startup the engine makes a knocking sound for about 3 seconds and goes away. I dont know if I have a major problem or not can you help?


I think it is normal for these vehicles. My '97 Tahoe did it also and I'd heard it was normal and not to be worried about. Kind of sucks but I had 150,000 miles on mine and it was fine.

Good luck.

'96 VW Golf GL with 2.0 motor. Cold start knock


It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)
