2010 Chevy Silverado engine problems?

Asked by Aug 01, 2017 at 01:13 PM about the 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi all! We own a 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3
engine recently we noticed a ticking sound.
Yesterday it got louder and then a bunch of lights
came on the dash.  Also the first sign something
was going wrong, and i dont know if this has
anything to do with the noise, but the tire pressure
light came on we filled the tires up and the light
never turned off. Any suggestions on the cause
would be greatly appreciated!

If there is oil in the engine, it could be the lifters. Does the noise go away after its been running for a few minutes and the oil pressure builds up? Get it looked at right away. If it gets really bad you will need a new engine and potentially camshaft! It's a known issue with those engines.
