ticking sound on my 01 2500 chevy silverado

10 posts in this topic

I have a ticking sound that seems to be coming from the passenger front side. It seems to be doing it only when accelerating. It doesnt seem to do it when I put it in neutral and press the gas. Any ideas.

Thanks

Is there something wrapped around your half shaft to the passenger side?

Does it sound maybe like an exhaust manifold leaking possibly or is it a definite metallic type tick?

Its hard to say. I kinda think it sound metallic but I'm not sure. If its the exhaust manifold what kind of cash will that cost to fix?

I'm almost positive there is a gasket between the manifold and exhaust pipe if there is that could be the culprit.

Does it make any difference if the engine is hot or cold?

If you read in your owners manual for the truck it states in there to expect a ticking noise from the chevys. I have the same problem. wasn't there when i bought the truck but once the miles started to be put on it started doing it. It is possible for it to be an exhaust leak from where the two meet. that would be a simple fix and the exhaust donout(gasket) is only a couple bucks.

start it up spray soapy water from a spray bottle on the donut to see if it blows back at you.

No it doesnt seem to matter if the engine is hot or cold. I will try some of the suggestions when I get a chance and post my results.

I had a ticking that I was sure was a leak in the exhaust manifold, but it turned out the AC belt was bad. I had just replaced it less than 6 months prior, so it was the last thing I checked because I assumed it was good. My clue was that the tensioner was bouncing really bad when it was running. It wasn't until I was underneath that I could see the "tread" missing from the AC belt that was causing the bouncing/noise. Good luck!

Is it a 5.3 or 6.0? If it is a 6.0 its not all that uncommon to have exhaust manifold bolts break off. (where they attach to the head) A visual inspection can tell you quick if thats the problem. Also, don't overlook a loose spark plug if they have been out either. I've never run into a loose factory installed one, but who knows?

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
