Yesterday my 95 c1500 5.0 started making a very noticeable clanking noise but only when warming up then when giving it throttle. Almost like what I would think pinging would sound like.
JA: Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: Timing is right, gas is from my regular pump, recent tune up, oil full, no check engine
light, it sounds like a stone in a tin can when I press the gas and is worse or faster with higher rpms, but stops when I take my foot off the gas even when coasting at highway speed
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Depending on what it is, short of a complete engine overhaul or tranny rebuild
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?
Customer: Truck so far still runs fine, no missfire, good power. It is just so loud and sounding like crap i'm afraid to drive it in case I do more damage. Truck has 235000 miles, has a recently newer exhaust
y pipe all the way back to tailpipe. Oh one more thing, when I started the truck last night when the noise started, the starter sounded funny like if I turn the ignition when truck is already running, not that I do that.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.
