Problem after DOD delete


Recommended Posts

I recently did a dod delete on my 2007 suburban. 6.0 200,000 miles. I thought the problem was the afm lifters being that there was a tick at highway speeds. I only had a tick at highway speeds. If I drove on the street I would never get the noise. As soon as I held a steady speed on the highway I would get what sounds like a lifter tick. The dod delete work was done by a Preformance shop. I do not think that dod was the problem. If I hold the throttle steady at 2000rpm while in park I can get the tick to come on. After I let the engine idle about 2-3 minutes the tick goes away. As soon as I hold the rpms back up it will come back and repeat the process. No loss of power while this is happening and no other sounds. Oil pressure is about 10-15 at idle and close to 40 while on highway. I would greatly appreciate any help.

      Just changed the oil on my 2014 gmc sierra 4.3l. It required six quarts of oil which is what i used but now i am afraid if its overfilled or not. Its a completely different reading than what it was before the oil change. Althought its not above the hashmarks there are 2 dots on there which I’m not sure if those are the oil level indicators or the hashmarks are the oil level indicators. The dots are kinda hidden which is why I’m not sure if those even are oil indicators dots. Im really hoping i filled it up correctly and wont ruin the engine by overfilling the oil. I installed a fumoto valve so it could be easier to drain excess oil. I do note there was a metallic ticking noise that was present before the oil change but disappeared afterwards.

      following picture (2) is before the oil change one of each side of the dipstick

      Hello,
       
      I own a 2007 Chevy 2500HD Classic, I was driving around when suddenly my ABS light came on as well as my service brake system light came on. When this happened my transmission became stuck in 1st gear in drive mode, but when I used the manual mode to shift it into 2nd it worked, also when I put the truck in reverse it stalled on me, these are a very strange group of symptoms and they’ve all started happening at once, also the speedometer stoped working as well.  I have no idea where to start with this so I’m hoping someone has a slight idea of where to start, Thank you!

      I have a 2017 Silverado 5.3L. Used to stay around 40 pounds of oil. Now when idling, is goes down to 20-25 ish pounds. It’s not throwing any codes up but does have a bit of a knock if I floor it without letting the pressure build back up first. Cold start it’s just below 40 pounds but at operating temps (210) it drops like crazy. It’s not oil quality or level, I just changed it last week and it was good for half a day and went back down.

      So, after countless hours of searching, I’ve decided to post here in desperate need of help. 
      My truck is currently in the shop, and on its 3rd mechanic trying to diagnose/fix the issue. 
      Originally I was getting an oil pressure sensor unit code months ago, and about a month of driving later, and I finally lost my oil pressure gauge (dropped to zero) but the truck was perfectly fine. 
      No loss of oil, etc. 
      So I brought it in to get it fixed and change the oil - they put an OEM part in and changed the screen. 
      Reset everything and I picked it up, a few moments later my check engine light returned. 
      Scanned it when I got home, same error code - active. 
      Checked for oil leaks, etc - nothing. 
      Returned a month later for them to fix it, they put in another OEM part and new screen…drive it 3 miles down the road, and it trips again. 
      They’ve checked the valve cover gasket and checked the PCM, everything seems fine. 
      The truck is not burning oil either. 
       
      I’ll add that my oil pressure gauge on my dash works fine now since they swapped sensors too. 
       
      Everyone is stumped on what to do, and I’m about to potentially go down the rabbit hole of ‘throwing parts at it’. Starting with the PCM and then the valve cover gasket, and many thousands of bucks potentially. 
       
      Does anyone have the slightest idea what’s going on? The PCM is throwing no other codes either, he has graphed and checked it. 
      Is it possible for the PCM to be corrupt without it giving errors, etc? 

      The tech is a 30 year vet, and a family friend - so by no means is he stupid. But this has stumped two other techs with equal experience too. 
       
      Now my truck is past inspection, and with my Check Engine light on, it’ll never pass. Plus I’m still half way on my loan, so just selling it isn’t an option. 
      Help!!!!
