  1. Here's the final update. Talked to my brother-in-law who was a sales manager at a Cheverolet dealership in Vegas. He mentioned the 5 year, 100,000 drive train warranty and that it might be worth the trip down to the dealership to have them look at it. So I decided to roll the dice once more and took it into the dealership. Now, 3 weeks later, I just got back from picking up my car. They had to pull the motor and tear it apart, but the did find that the crank bearings were worn and one of them was actually broken. They replaced the bearings, put Ginny back together and it cost me nothing
  2. As I was watching the first video again, it really does sound very similar to the ticking noise that I hear on my car. I wish the guy had rev'd up his motor a couple times, but I think tomorrow I am going to start with the Seafoam trick and if that does not produce anything, I will try the rag trick from the other video. If anything, this will either show me the problem is an exhaust leak, or rule that out. Keep you posted.
  3. Frosty- I really appreciate all your suggestions you are posting. I will look into both of the suggestions that you have posted above. I will also try to get my GoPro out and film a bit while driving so folks can hear the actual noise and how it sounds while I am driving. I will keep you posted as to what I find out as I keep trying to locate and fix this "tick."
  4. I spent the day today replacing all 6 injectors on the car with new ones. Took most of the day as this was the first time I have popped the upper intake manifold off and checked out the injectors and fuel rails. Learned a lot about how to do it and feel that I could now do this in about half the time. Anyway, replaced the injectors and the car still makes the ticking noise. I am not arguing that it could be piston slap, but from what I understand and what I have been told is that if it were piston slap, it would get a bit more quiet as the engine warmed up, however with my issue,
  5. Spent some time today listening to the motor with a diagnostic stethoscope. Once I put it on the fuel rail you could really hear the ticking a lot more than on any other part of the motor. Did some quick searches online with my dad and found out that many other folks are having the same issue and most of them all point to the injectors being the culprit. I am going to focus on the rail and injectors for now and see where that takes me. Ill keep you all posted.
  6. Greetings, Over the past two months, my car has been making this "ticking" noise. 06joegt from G6performance had posted a similar thread and included this video that he shot of his motor making the same noise: I took my car into my mechanic and had him check it out. He said right off the bat, that it sounded like it could be the lifters. He spoke with a machinist friend and a few other wrench heads and they all agreed that it sounded like the lifters. However, they also all agreed that my car should not be making that noise with the amount of miles I had on it (73k) and th
  7. At least that is an interested maybe.
  8. Greetings all West Coasters! Does anyone know of any upcoming meets or is there any interest in putting one together in the next few weeks/months? The last one I was at was last year in October when we rolled out to SoCal. I had a good time at that one and would love to try and get something going again soon. Post up if you are interested.
  9. G6P Polls show 3 for Sac, 2 for Fresno and 3 for Santa Monica. There are 2 votes for April 2nd, 3 votes for April 16th, and 3 votes for April 30th. Going by the combined poll number from here and G6P, it looks like Santa Monica on the 16th would be the winner with the most votes if the meetup were to be decided by just the poll.
  10. April 16th weekend at either Santa Monica or Sacramento...so say the poll's anyway. We need a tie breaker shoot out like in hockey to decide where we are going! /grabs his stick and gloves.
  11. I think I will take it down and have them check the alignment and roatate the tires at the same time in two weeks. Ill follow up here and let you guys know what happens. And yes, I have hit a pothole or two, not on purpose of course, since lowering the car and having the alignment done.
