2006 GMC Yukon Chirping



I have a 2006 Yukon that we love, but recently we have been having a few issues. All of a sudden I have a horrible chirping/ticking coming from under the hood. It seems like it is on the drivers side (but that could be because that's the side I am on). I have run Risolene through it thinking it is maybe a lifter. I have replaced the tension pulley and another pulley that had a little noise. Belts look good. I am still having the issue. It gets louder and more noticeable as I am accelerating (super embarrassing at stop lights). It seems to get better once the RPM's drop, but maybe there is just enough road noise that I can't hear it. As mentioned, I love this truck and want to make it right. Any suggestions.


I have included a clip. You can kind of hear the clinking chirping. As I accelerate it becomes more pronounced. It sounds like it is coming from near the bell housing.


Thanks for everything!

Thank you to everyone who looked at my post. I apologize the clip did not come through. After more research I have found that the starter splines are not lining up with the flywheel causing the horrible sound. I am putting a new starter in this afternoon, and I am hoping I can just enjoy my beauty of a ride again. Thanks for everything!
