Oil pressure and ticking sound 99 5.3 silverado
I notice that my oil pressure gauge is
reading a little low. It usually sits at half,
and now its around the 1/4 mark. Also, I
started hearing a ticking noise from the
motor (I thought it may be a cracked
exhaust manifold/donut gasket) but after
researching, these two happen together
commonly and it may be lifter tap? Any help
How is the oil level? Using the correct weight? Might be your oil pump starting to fail, oil pressure sounds low.
I added 1.5 quarts about a week ago. Like any old Ls it burns oil
