I just had the head gasket
replaced 4 days ago on my 2005 Chevy Equinox. I have had the car for two days, and now I hear clicking and flapping sounds whenever I start the car and when driving. My father insisted on using his mechanic, rather than take it to the dealership which I should have insisted he not do it, being as whenever you take something to this guy to be fixed, something else goes out shortly after.
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: It just started this morning. It sounds like it is definitely in the engine
, but I can't tell where.
JA: Are you fixing your Equinox yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I took the Chevy to the mechanic to have him fix a blown head gasket. I have only had the car back 2 days and now it is doing this.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: The mechanic claimed he reset the valves, and that he had to do it in order to repair the head gasket. In the past, whenever I heard this noise, it was related either to valve cover gaskets or low oil pressure, which I am diligent about changing the oil every 3,000 miles.
