Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I assume all of the time. I only notice it when I'm outside the truck.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
There are no warning lights.

Do you have any driving/ engine performance issues ?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No. No issues at all.

Roughly how many miles do you have on the engine?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
43,000

The tapping noise is not normal on this engine. It will be louder than a car but no tapping should be present.
