I got a 2015 Silverado 5.3l. 138,250km. started ticking sometime last winter. Would happen instantly at start up and last about 5 minutes then would fade away. Sounded like a lifter. Took it to the dealer they said they couldn't hear it. Sound went away so left it.
Fast forward to this winter and as Soon as the weather started to cool down I noticed the ticking again.
Took it back to the dealer said they couldn't hear it again. I went and picked up my truck right at closing, soon as I fired her up the sound was there but everyone was gone so no one to hear it. I took a video. Next day I called the dealer, sent the video. Took like a week to get back to me. In the meantime I had taken videos pretty much every time I started it.
Long story short after a brief fight with them about them trying to say it's normal etc they agreed that it sounded like a noise coming from the valve train. Left my truck with them, they called me said they had to change all lifters. Went to pick up my truck and on start up the sound is still there.
This was a month ago. Sent more videos and a previous video from before they did the work and they are saying they can't hear it again.
Took it in in person they agreed that there's an issue again and they will look at it. Now they are saying it's possible bad injector noise but they can't figure out which one 🙄.
In the meantime I took it to another dealership they changed the vacuum pump. After that the sound changed. Now it's no longer at start up but once the truck has reached operating temperature and is more of a dull sound. Took it back to that same dealer who did the vacuum pump and they said valve train noise and deffo not injectors. But they won't work on it because the other dealer already did.
They didn't change the VLOM or the cam. I had/have no check engine lights. Truck runs awesome. Sometimes rough idle.
Any ideas what it could be?
Currently have my 2020 Gmc sierra 1500 with a build date of 09/2019 at the dealer with 2kmiles on it. Battery was dead one morning. After jump starting had check engine light and brake antilock system issue sent to my email. Truck would not hold a charge after leaving it on for a good 30 min. Its been at the dealer for 3days now.

Hi and thanks to take the time to read my story.
I just bought a Silverado 1500 6 cil. Mod. 2007
Everything works great except the gearbox make the trrrrrr noise when I engage the third shift. All other works great.
I also feel that the clutch is a bit hard to press... I need more muscle or it's normal.
The first and the reverse engage without trouble.
Tomorrow I will check the oil inside the transmission.
Thanks for your help....

I have a 2018 1500 Silverado, was going to order headlights for it but the ones I like are titled for 2500’s and 3500’s, I was just wondering if they’re able to bolt onto my 1500 and look correct
