saleem83: Hey brian. I've got this noise on my 2004 Tahoe with 75k. It does it only after a warm start after sitting for about an hr. Doesn't do it while its warmed up. I tried an aft flush. Seemed to help a little but not much. Truck has been maintained religiously. Do u think its worth a shot to spray them out?
lokslick: You sir just save me a bunch of money they try to charge me $2,500 to get my 03 Chevy fixed but now thanks God I found this video and thank you for taking the time to show people how to do this kind of things again thanks a lot!
stangbang100: Would you recommend trying the ATF in the motor oil method to clean motor up?
califcheesehead: I noticed this same sound in my 2006 GMC Yukon XL 5.3 1500. At first it was very faint and I was going to take it to the mechanic at the end of the week but in the period of a few days it became not quuite as loud as it is in your video. I took it in this morning and they told me it was the harmonic balancer changed it and the sound was still there. They say it is a bad lifter and gave me a quote of 3300 to replace the cam or 6000 to replace the engine if the engine was damaged. Any feedback?
briansmobile1: De nada.
LEO TERAN: excelente amigo gracias,
briansmobile1: Your oil filters must be incredibly high quality.
martino009: damn over here in europe we do 20.000 miles with oil change or 30.000km 5w30 full synt
sanjaya gunarathna: To anyone who wants to get ripped eventually. Go Google Morsch Muscle Madness to find out more.
Turco949: You lost me at "If you can get it up without bending it or kinking it"! lol
ridingcamro: Wow! Thanks, now I will follow up with my problem on my truck. The one issue I have right now is that my motor has a "shaky" feeling and even when I shift to gear it gets worse. Any idea what that is??
Tyler Coleson: I appreciate you taking time to post this video i learned a lot and i enjoy your comedy haha
Warren Bradely: Considering the position of the lifter that chemtool is just going to trickle down into the oil pan without touching a Gasket...Then it will magically be diluted in oil...You do realize you can put sea foam in oil and this is perfectly safe right?And if your screen gets clogged - drop the oil pan no big deal.It's better to remove slug in the engine no?
Warren Bradely: Well digi, the key to this is when you try and listen to lifter noise on utube videos you cannot flagulate at the same time you are watching said video...In other words:dont fart on that hard seat you are sitting on at your computer when watching automotive troubleshooting videos - lay off the chili dogs bubu
Warren Bradely: The sound of a utube video can be deceptive...I could tell only because I have been through this before...I could tell it was only one lifter...Them oil ports on those lifters are small...Maybe they were going for increased pressure through a small orifice hole when they designed them? Who knows?
digitalfuk: Damn, that sounded like all of them making noise.
Warren Bradely: Believe me, I ran my engine with the valve cover off and could visibly see the low pressure at one rocker arm.To hard to find it with the valve cover on...Oil pressure makes for quiet valves, could see it with me own eyes
Warren Bradely: It is digi...at one lifter like Brian fixed..Them little holes on chevy lifters are tempermental.If the oil sender is in good condition - its a damn plugged lifter oil hole...A tap on one lifter is a dead give away - cheers digi
Warren Bradely: What a nice video Brian....So common with chevys.This video saves on major tear down if not needed...Subscribed brother.
briansmobile1: Watch the video on my channel about a misfire that isn't ignition related. It's on a black Ford Ranger. "How to diagnose a misfire that isn't ignition related"
digitalfuk: Sounds like low or no oil pressure.
Diallo268: If they both come on that usually means your ABS control module (ABS computer) is dying.
Diallo268: I wouldn't suggest spraying that chemtool into the engine. Not good for gaskets/seals/bearing. Even the motor flush itself is dangerous because it can clog your oil pickup tube screen depending on the mileage or buildup. I just bought an 02 tahoe, but I'm going to just pull the head off and replace all the lifters on that one side making the noise.
ltangelf: I have a 2001 chevy Tahoe and just over a year ago it started making a sound, not like a knock like this more of a squeak, the weird thing is on hot days it doesn't squeak on cold days it does and the squeak only happens wen I step on the gas, wen I reach a certain speed it also goes away. But some times wen its sitting there it will squeak once in awhile, do u know wat it is?
R Leiva: Brian please help you have always been the go to guy abs light and brake like turned on then i shut off my 2002 tahoe and turn it back on the lights are gone what is it
briansmobile1: It's diesel fuel that's sold at the gas station. ; P I hear ya. It buys you time, but it can also dislodge gunk if it's excessive.
blackdog1960les: what is diesel gas ?? -- I know what diesel is --- I am not a big fan of using a motor flush on a engine with 200,000 miles
wildebtw: Thanks for posting this. I've got that exact sound coming from my 03 Tahoe's 5.3 engine. I'm going to give this a shot.
mrkongsimr: Very nice . but is there nothing you can put in your oil that cleans this out. If you can not take it apart , like me . You seem to know what you are doing .
jlove1974: auto-rx dot com
jlove1974: I recommend a product called AutoRX. It's been around a LONG time, it is safer than solvent flushes since it uses esters and other safe ingredients, and is proven to clean sludge-prone engines like the Toyota 3.0L and 3.3L V-6s. wwwDOTautorxDOTcom
Chris M.: great vid. LS chevy power rules!
nikogto: Check out my channel, I got a supercharged 468 you might like
Christopher Muskey: Thank you Brian, my 07 silverado with a 4.8 was making the same noise, started when under acceleration then within a week would tick at idle. It seemed to be coming from the # 2 exhaust so I did the motor flush, being it the least intrusive, then the chemtool and in 50 miles the tick was gone. Thank you so much.
KIKOMAN1234561: Do you know anyone in colorado that can do this for me??
briansmobile1: I see through you.
alymross: You are funny and informative!!!! Great job!!!!!
Now come fix my truck :)
Jacob Theabold: Dude, i would love for you to teach me about cars. I just got a big block 454 bored .060 over to 468 and it needs some work. Thank you for informational videos!!
zachavery18: thank you for the great video! But I Did the whole same exact process and it still makes the same noise.. Even changed oil and filter. Any help would be great
Alex Marcela: Suscribed btw, only ebay mechanic vid that is funny lol
Alex Marcela: Im going to be doing this to my explorer. It has high miles (238,000) but it runs good, just has the lifter tick on the passenger side cylinder head. One mechanic listening to my truck told me to use motor flush like you did. I googled it, and everyone says NOT to use it on an old engine because it will break up the gunk and choke the journals with crap. Yet you pulled it off (as well as some other youtubers. The trick seems to be do an oil change immediately after you flush the motor.
Jim Jeep: Not diesel gas!!
bernardox: redneck solutions nice video , i have a camaro 350 with the same problem, right now im go to do this!! thanks
davidmaloy50: Awesome video
K Janssen: You're awesome. I think this has what has happened with my Chrysler
William Eldridge: I'm having a problem with my '99 Tahoe w/5.7. Had the oil changed 2 weeks ago (and there was a lot of sludge in the old filter!) Went with Castrol Synthetic 5w30 and K&N filter. Drove to TN and back last week, now the truck is making that same ticking sound AND has very low oil pressure! It only has 138K miles, and did have decent oil pressure before. Any thoughts??
SUZUKlRlDER: Truck i have makes the new sounds, guess i may let a shop flush it.
DaeVeeMusic: Hey, Brian! So I wanna run do a motor flush but my oil level is a bit high. What do I do? I've tried waiting but it doesn't seem to be going down much. The previous owner must have put too much. But yeah, I wanna get rid of a lifter tap.
mhockey23: Same thing happened on my '08 silverado. Wish I could've fixed this myself; winded up costing me $4100!
gastonprz: How about using ATF to flush it?
