Chevy 5.3 Liter Lifter Noise And Motor Flush Solution How To




What do you think about this video?

William Atkins: great video guy!!!!! Just what I needed for my 2004 Tahoe this weekend!!!!!! I'll be performing this job on Sat. morning.........this will save me a lot of time and money hopefully!!!!

mark lemos: I did motor flush changed oil upgraded from conventional to synthetic blend and added rislone. The tapping went away, car even ran better. Two weeks passed and the tap is back and louder. Now getting misfire on 5 which is where I used a stethoscope to pin point where the tap is coming from. Any suggestions as to what I can do next. also, It's not a dirty or un kept engine I keep the car maintained well... 2008 Pontiac grand prix 3.8 v6 base model

JR Reed: Behind all the shenanigans there is some great tech in these videos! I'd love to get dirty wrenching on something with this guy lol. Thumbs up for a cool video. 

Misty Buffum: Hmmm doesn't seem he answers questions but only post videos, is it true? I keep finding videos like this but none that are helping answer issues. 

Benice Ryan Balague: Use Amsoil products. It will be better for your maintenance needs especially doing engine flushes. =)

ArmaAceChannel: brian have you ever had sex in a car?

jim davidson: Rislone would of cured this one. Ask your grandfather all about it.

tibbysteve: Hey Brian. This is Steve. You met me and my wife when your dog was on the loose or so we thought in Starcrest drive. Anyways. I was hoping you could help me one day identity the noise my 03 tiburon gtv6 is making. I'm trying to sell it for a low price of 2,000 bucks but in the last 6 years I'm into the car 20,000+ please help. Thanks neighbor. And how's your doggy doing we loved her. She was a great minding dog. 

crackermoves: ANYONE with lifter noise or ticking add 1 or 2 quarts of Transmission fluid in place of 2 quarts of oil and put 300 miles on it.. It works WONDERS.. Cleans all hydraulic lifter journals and turns of check engine lights to... Its amazing.. ATF is a lubricant so will not hurt your motor but is high detergent... 

Chance Jensen: You might have saved me a lot of money, I'll find out tomorrow! Thanks for the vid

Robby VanWagoner: That ticking noise is from the metal on the lifters roller starting to get pitted. No solution will make it go away until you replace the worn parts. Left untreated it will eventually flatten the camshaft lobe and cause a misfire. 

Anthony L: Google bulletin #06-06-01-019B (a lot of good info there)

Evan Austin: Hey brian, I got a 99 with a 5.3 and well I went mud ridin (yes I know a big no no) and we'll when I went to clean the truck off and engine bay, my engine started to tick just like this truck in your vid, it was showing no oil pressure on gauge and I put a quart of oil and now it's normal but I didn't start the truck to see if it continues to tick, also my engine is needing a oil change also, could be oil needs to be change and motor flush? No oil leaks that I notice or cracks or anything? Just started ticking after cleaning engine bay off? Any tips/advice ??? 

Netruckcap: Had exact same issue, think about it on all these videos it's always the #1 and 2 cylinders make the tick noise. The O-ring on oil pick-up tube is going bad. They get dried out over time and start to break down this causes oil to suck air into pump and decreases pressure to front two cyniders. I tried all the tricks shown on YouTube, none worked then I finally lost all pressure. I changed the pump and the noise was back, then I changed the O-ring on the pick-up tube. When I changed the pump only I must have seated the O-ring better than it was but it was still bad. Hasn't made a tick since and my oil psi is back where it should be. Save your self the time and money, get a new O-ring for the pickup tube, which it think comes in the lower pan gasket set and change it.

Steve Mayer: Where can I get me some of that there diesel gas?

Barnekkid: Why do you think seafoam is so good?

Lion85X: I had the same thing happen to my truck, but I put half a can of seafoam in it and drove it for a hundred miles and did a oil change and that stuff really worked great. It was running smoother, quieter, and there was a lot less crank time. 

NYRM1974: I have a 5.3L Vortec on my 04 Chevy Trailblazer. What I do is bring the engine to operating temperature. Then I check to make sure that the oil is to level. Then I pour Marvel Mystery oil run for about 4 minutes. Drain crankcase ..... because I am using synthetic oil, I add one quart of Lucas oil treatment and the remainder of quality brand synthetic oil. I have been doing this on my Trailblazer Ext LS and it runs great. I drop my oil every 4000 miles. 

Michael Burman: I have a 2007 Chevy Avalanche....can you do a video on how to actually replace the lifters?

Adam Rupert: Love your vids....question for ya, on a 08 Tahoe, 5.3, got what looks like a collapsed lifter on #6. I've watched your video on replacing the intake gasket and was curious if you could suggest how and what needs removing to get to the lifters? Valley pan? Cylinder head?...thanks for any help/suggestions.

Sickofit: Has anyone ever considered replacing the lifters? That trick has always worked for me on other engines in the past! The new Chevy V8's are sooo easy to work on, I love them!

q8single: yes I know that sound its oil pump change it before it break your engine

snowy800123: my 97 chev 1500 has that noise.. 

XboobtubeX: so after the 5 min. of idle running for the motor flush, I take it you drain it out and replace it with fresh oil????

hddm3: cant fix stupied brian

HUBBABUBBA DOOPYDOOP: Lifter cleaning: Use the pushrod as a "straw" to *directly inject* the cleaning fluid, AND to *push the lifter down to work it*, pumping the cleaner through it. IMO K1 Clear Kerosene is a great "flushing" fluid; drain 2 QTS oil, replace with same amount of K1 CLEAR Kerosene (not the cheap pink colored). Also- to check for a bent pushrod- clean, then roll them slowly by hand on a piece of quality window glass. *OLD SCHOOL STUFF.*

DavidscarReviews: My dad has the same problem on his 05 chevy Tahoe and it gets worse I'm lucky is not happening to my 13 tahoe but I'm gonna fix it for him but it's a lot of money to get a waterpump 

burtonkidd: Thank god my lifter noise isn't that loud, the ever so slight tick i have on my 5.3 drives me nuts when i have the window down at a light. Would it be alright to go to lets say 5w 40 instead of the recommended 5w 30 to reduce some tick or would they be the same viscosity when at operating temp?

cam94z28: If it is actually a lifter tick, as in, it' usually worse when cold, and quiets down somewhat, or completely once warm. I have 3 words for you....MARVEL Mystery Oil! I have a 95k LS1 Camaro. It had a fairly terrible lifter tick on cold startup, which would continue for at least several minutes. Sometimes still ticking when halfway to work. I added a quart of Marvel, in place of one quart of oil, at my last oil change. Each time I started it, it was a little better. Within about 3 days of normal, short-trip driving, the tick completely went away, and hasn't come back over the entire oil change. I will be using it at every oil change in this car, and occasionally in vehicles that aren't ticking.

Joe Galofaro: alright this helped ALOT, BUT I HAVE A QUESTION SOMEBODY GIVE ME SOME ADVICE, i have a few years experience as a tech in a small shop in a small town and im not being a douche but im not bad for a teenager, but when it comes down to brass tax you cant triumph experience, so my step dad has an 2008 Chevy Tahoe with 210xxx miles! he takes long driving trips in it, been an AMAZING TRUCK, never touched the front end, never had ANY motor problems till now, very small lifter or somekinda tick, very faint but multiple ticks are coming too. should i even bother getting into this and tearing down heads? or just run some 0w30 syntec then flush or just flush or what? i dont have access to a shop anymore since ive switched professions into the military, but i can still do it in a friends garage, help?? PLEASE!?

Black70Fastback: "diesel gas" is that like a 50/50 mix?

Standard Excellence: I love how you explain things. And you answer some of the 'dumb questions' that people who are probably watching wouldn't know to ask instead of just assuming everyone knows. :)

gary mathews: also roller the push rods to check for straightness.check the rocker arms for missing bearings .

Jose Arellano: does that noise go away once the engine is all warmed up? i hear something similar in my 03 tahoe but it goes away when it is warmed up. it is more noticeable in the mornings specially if its cold

fordsucks2: Great Video. 5 stars

Tom Schroeder: So my truck, 2000 Silverado 1500 5.3, sounds just like this for the first couple minutes or so of start up, depending on how cold it is, is this likely my problem?

DestroyAllorNothing: Berryman B12 is the crap, I have been preaching this product for over 10 years, once you use it you'll never buy anything else. I personally would never have put that spray nozzle down in the head, I've had to many blow off the end, and that would suck to try and extract it. Thanks for the vid

Brad Meyer: Subscribed because of 11:45 and 13:20 lol

Randy Sparks: Valve spring is broke.

Dennis DiMarzio: Problem was the O ring on the pick up tube. Thanks for your video and thanks to your posters. My Buddy and I recently fixed his noisy 5.3. It had the same noise as in your video. It was louder during load while going up a hill. It was the O ring located on the pick up tube. It was cracked and came out in two pieces. There was no way it could have been allowing oil pump to efficiently operate. Factory oil pan gasket and O ring were very reasonable. Problem solved. Not a hard job. Probably a 2 - 3 hour job. 

SkilledEddie: I'd be afraid to use any type of motor flush products. What if some crap dislodges and plugs up your oil pickup screen. You are supposed to drain the oil after you use those products but how do you know after you change the oil some crap breaks loose in the future and goes right up in the that oil pickup. I have a 1997 chevy tahoe with 180,000 I was thinking about using a flush product but I'm just going to use pennzoil high mileage it has cleaning agents in it already. I think oil slowly cleans the engine into tiny particles a flush sandblasts the inside of your engine lol just my theory

jackson j: mechanic in the can

Kellen Richard: NICE JOB!

ricerust: wat bout that big ass hole in that hose lol

Chris Wheeler: Dude your a bad ass! You know your stuff. My 2000 silverado is doing the same thing. Could I try just putting sea foam in the oil right before I change it and possibly clear it out?

Chris Bryant: im getting mixed messages I want to replace rocker arms and push rods some say 22 ft lbs. some say roltate 360 deg. ive seen guys do just 22 ft. lbs. can someone tell me if its ok to just torque them 22 ft. lbs.

Wade Thomas: Brian your videos are awesome, if I may offer a suggestion to help you avoid future headaches: tape the straw to the applicator nozzle before spraying that way you wont lose the straw down into the engine if there is a blow out between the nozzle and straw

lat woods: Damn I love my DOHC and SOHC engines (2005 Nissan Altima 2.5L cyl 235,000 miles no problems, 2007 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner reg cab 2.7L 4cyl 147,000 miles no problems, 2011 Toyota 4Runner 4.0L V6 78,000 miles, and my 1994 Ford Ranger 2.3L 4cyl, SOHC 351,484 miles no problems) no lifters, pushrods, or rocker arms.

cam94z28: Have you ever had a motor fail after running a harsh flush like the gunk through it? You are bold if you ran it through a 180k mile engine :P
