    I have an 05 4wd chevy pickup with 127, 000 miles on it. I could not be more pleased with the performance of the truck. But on Wednesday when i crunk it up the thing started ticking. It has continued to do so every time I crank it up since. Of course this sends fear pulsing through my blood as i fear it has a real problem. Some people have told me that this is common and to run some bg cleaner through it and it will be o.k. Anybody have any ideas i would appreciatte it.

    BG Cleaner or Marvel Mystery oil will clean out oil and carbon deposits that tend to gum things up.

    Still going on

    I used some of that sea foam, thinking it may be better than mystery oil.
    Still doing it and more it seems. One more try then i'm going into the head or buying some new heads to get right before install.
