View Full Version : LBZ: Clicking noise at Idle

02-07-2009, 11:36 AM
New guy here, I have an 06 silverado with the LBZ. At idle there is a clicking sound at the back of the engine. Sounds like something bouncing around in the tourqe converter area. This sound is only at idle though. Any help would be appriciated. The truck is all stock withe exception of cold air intake and a cat back exhaust. Thanks.

Is it like a ticking typewriter sound? If so my truck does the same thing, I have been told it's normal.
Welcome :D

Edit: I think it has something to do with oil pressure and clearances in the motor. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

My LBZ has done the same thing since new. We will see if the built motor continues to do this once it's running again.

It has a tendancy to go away after a while. Then you do an oil change and it comes back. Since I went to Amsoil I haven't heard it.
