Noisy lifters on start up
The guy I bought it from said he changed the timing chain and tensionerI run a towing company and most people with a 1st gen Traverse talk of the “lifter tick at startup “ before the timing chain goes. My understanding is it’s cheaper to have it checked and done while it’s still running than to get it done after the chain breaks.
2009 with new timing chainLifters?
The High Feature V6 is a DOHC engine, no lifters or pushrods.
What year is your Traverse?
What exactly is the noise, what does it sound like?
Can you tell where it's located?
Do you have any check engine lights?
