valve noise at start up

Asked by Jul 17, 2007 at 05:57 PM about the 2003 GMC Envoy XL SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ticking noise at start-up. Sounds like valve noise, but goes away when warmed up. Checked oil level which was fine.

The most likely cause would be an exhaust leak. Exhaust leaks sound just like a bad lifter,and usually get quiet after engine warms up and everything expands. Check exhaust donuts.

I have the same problem with my 2004 Envoy XL. Did you find out what the problem was?
