    ticking noise

    I noticed today that I have a ticking noise when my gto idles. From my experience, that usually means you need to tighten the rockers or you have a lifter going bad. Anybody have this occur? I just recently change the oil so I know it isn't that.

    Yeah,mine ticks a little bit and it's not from the condition or quanity of oil. But as long as mine is not the only one,must be typical.

    Do the injectors tick on the LS1? Sometimes a little thicker oil will quiet an engine down.

    I asked my GM tech and he stated that it is cam related and that it is totally normal. He said that I was one of about 20,000 people that have asked him about it with both the LS1 and LS2.
