I took my diesel in again and they did diagnostics. Everything running as normal and they said the clatter is a normal thing for all the 3.0L Duramax diesels. I told them it's lazy engineering and would like Chevy to rectify. This is louder than any diesel I've had and driven.

With my main concern being excessive wear over the life of the vehicle on the valves and valve seats

I also had what sounded like valve noise during light acceleration. It seemed to get worse the closer to a regen it got. I had to bring the truck in to the dealer for a bad battery, and had them do an oil change( first one) while there. On my way home after picking it up, I noticed on my paperwork that they put 6 quarts of 5w30 dexos in my truck. Turned around and went strait back to the dealer and told them they put in the wrong oil. Dealer looked up my vin on their computer, and 5w30 dexos was listed as the correct oil. I showed them the manual, and the oil cap on the truck shows 0w20 dexosD. Dealer called GM, and it was determined that the info in the computer was wrong.(How the he** does that happen). After another oil and filter change with the correct oil, no more valve clatter!! Maybe the oil that was originally in there was wrong also?

That’s scary Silverado21, when I picked up my truck it had 5000 miles on it as a demo I had them change the oil and have put another 5000 on it .when I tried to get the service records from the dealership thinking they may have done the same thing they assured me they used the correct oil but were changing computer programs and couldn’t access the records as I mentioned above Neither the parts department nor the service department were very familiar with 0W 20 Dexos d I’m going to take it in for an oil change Monday morning first thing if that stops the rattling someone’s going to have to answer some serious questions about the longevity of my motor in the warranty
