Thread: need advice

  1. #1

    Exclamation need advice

    i got a 84 gmc suburban..305ci with a valve tick when its cold but gos away after it warms up but it is starting to get really loud and im thinking its a cloged oil hole or sumthin to that valve.
    the previous owners never realy changed the oil so maybe its all the old chunks of built up gunk.
    anyways if theres a quick fix for it i could use the advice

    You could try some seafoam in the oil, and possibly down the intake per seafoams directions. that might help to clean things out.
