LS1 Knocking Noise
2002 Camaro Z28 Bone
stock making a knocking noise, at first I thought it was a bearing but Ive
been told by mechanics that its a lifter. what do you think?
DEATH OF A TRANS AM WS6!!
After a year of beating on the stock block after all the mods, and
approaching 98k miles, the LS1 block finally started having excessing
blow-by in the cylinders and also blowing oil into the upper crankcase
housing. It ran strong, producing idle launch 1/4 times of 12.4 @ 118MPH.
But....IT'S TIME TO GO BIG!! Updates on the way...

LS1 Knocking!! Lifters, Rod Bearing????
ok the motor had started knocking severely from the same area with maybe
8lbs oil pressure, the mains were replaced and two of them were shot. Once
that was put back together started it an held oil pressure but this sound
was present. It sounds like a bad lifter to me, after what seems like 30
seconds passes it quiets down. The car will run and drive fine but the
sound comes an goes. I reved it the other day to about 4500, no sounds
while reving, once back at idle it was tick nothing, tick nothing

UPDATE: Have found the problem - it was the lifters afterall! Have had a
few people message me on here now, and yes, my problem was the lifters.
Got a bit of a knock coming from the ol' LS1... sounds like lifters but I'm
not completely sure, nor is my mechanic.
