  1. Engine Tick - 2015 GMC Sierra 5.3

    Is there an updated part number?
  2. Anyone cutting directly into the return line?
  3. Installing OEM Cab roof lights?

    Were there marks on the bottom side of the roof for locating the lights?

    According to the GM field tech, this is normal. He said the valves become louder as the vehicle gains mileage and it's completely normal. I'm not sure if I buy that.

    I guess it's a possibility. I was thinking a cam phaser or push rods that are a hair too short and there's some play.
  6. Engine Tick - 2015 GMC Sierra 5.3

    I dropped mine off at the dealer today. I did notice the headers seemed to make the noise louder. I'm wondering if it's something in the VVT or lifters. The 5.3 in the loaner Tahoe I have is dead silent. I've tried to correlate it, and can't find anything. It seems.to come and go at will.

    I've also noticed it's louder in higher temps. Thanks to the wild temperature swings here in OK, I've been able to prove this theory over the last few days.
  8. I noticed it just a hair after I leveled. I really noticed it after the tires.
  9. There’s places that repair them. It’s a warranty issue on the OE units.
  10. I have the same issue with 33” on my 17. Only does it on sharp U turns
  11. Lifter Rattle

    Check the engine tick thread. I have the noise and AFM is disabled in my truck.
  12. Higher Octane Fuel Hurts Transmission?

    Fuel has 0 impact on the transmission
  13. I just had this done on mine. They replaced the drivers side head.
  14. Exhaust Leak

    See the 5.3 engine tick thread. It’s not an exhaust leak.

    Welp, new cylinder head is on. It still makes the ticking. The dealer tried to blame it on the small exhaust leak I have with the car back I have. I’m fixing that today and then the service manager and I are going to do a drive together.
