Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No it is a suttle knock you can only hear from the outside with your head around the front tires. I have 200,000km on it. It only does it when it is warmed up
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Sorry I have good oil pressure

Chevy Mechanic: JOHN aka Eauto, The Car Guy replied 2 years ago

a lower end knock is generally a rod or main bearing..The only way to check is removal and tear down of the engine.. These are common for cam and lifter noises that sound lower end.. is the engine light on? any codes?
