About 8 months ago upon first start up of the day of my '00 Silverado (5.3 V-8), or even after sitting a while having a chance to cool, I hear a light knocking sound coming from the engine. It goes away after the engine is warmed up and the fluids have had a decent chance to circulate, but the knock has gotten worse either. What do you reckon?

Have you checked your timing? Cuz if the timing is "Retarded" to far it can do that.1994 GMC Yukon, 2 door, Victory Red

It could be piston slap or a rod knock. My 02 would knock when it was really cold out until the motor warmed up. I would let it idle until the knock stopped and then drive, it did not get worse over time though
