Some customers may comment on a ticking type noise that begins shortly after cold engine start-up and gradually diminishes as the engine warms up. In most cases, the noise is gone after five (5) minutes. In severe cases, the noise may not disappear when lhe engine is hot. CAUSE Under normal design tolerances when the piston pin bore is produced at the maximum tolerance and the piston pin is produced at the minimum tolerance (min-max tolerance) trace noise levels can occur. This level of noise does not affect the reliability or durability of the product. CORRECTION If piston-to-pin noise is detected and the customer desires the condition to be corrected, replace all six pistons with pin assemblies. The new piston sets have a minimal piston-to-pin clearance. Remember, piston-to-pin noise occurs in both park and drive at engine idle rpm and it varies in intensity depending on the number of pistons involved. A ticking sound means one piston is affected whereas a rattle or diesel type sound indicates more than one piston affected. The following should also be checked: 1. On W-Cars, make sure the right side engine splash shield is not contacting the engine crankshaft balancer. This condition usually happens cold and is caused by the shield curling when cold. 2. Reference Service Bulletin 57-71-06 for transmission rattle noise often confused for engine rattle noise. 3. Reference Service Bulletin 47-61-36 for Accessory Drive Belt Tensioner noise. 4. Check cylinder bore diameter and piston diameter as outlined in the Service Manual. Use the procedure in the appropriate Service Manual for piston replacement. Service Bulletin 57-61-24 (Section 6 – Engine). NOTE: Excessive cylinder bore to piston diameter clearance can cause a similar type noise. NOTE: When installing the new piston and pin assembly onto the existing rods, use extreme care to avoid damage to either the pin or piston bore. If damage to these areas occurs, the noise will return because the damage will cause wear and excessive clearance


SERVICE PROCEDURE Replace Starter, Add Cleaner 1. Replace the starter motor. • Use the part number from the Parts Information section of this bulletin. • Refer to section SC, “STARTING SYSTEM, Removal and Installation” in the applicable Nissan Electronic Service Manual (ESM). 2. Add one full can of Nissan In-Tank Fuel System Cleaner to the fuel. NOTE: If the fuel tank is less than ¾ full, instruct the customer to fill the tank as soon as it is convenient after the repair. Driving with the Cleaner installed and low fuel level will not harm the fuel system or engine, but will reduce the effectiveness of the cleaning process. 3. Continue to ECM Part Number Check (next page). 1. With CONSULT-II “ON”, print the Self-DIAG Results as follows: START (Nissan) >> ENGINE >> Self-DIAG Results >> PRINT SELF-DIAG RESULTS SYSTEM ENGINE DATE XX/XX/XXXX* 11:07:11 P/N 23710-XXXXX TP020389h DTC RESULTS TIME NO DTC IS DETECTED Current ECM Part Number * Example, your screen may differ. 3. Using the printout from Step 1: • Compare the vehicle’s current ECM P/N to those shown under Current ECM P/N in Chart 1, below: • This comparison will allow you to determine if the ECM needs to be reprogrammed.

LM7, L59 or L33 Engines with Cold Start Rough or Incorrect Idle, Misfire, Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) or Flashing Requiring O2 Sensor Replacement

2004-2005 Cadillac Escalade 2004-2005 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado 1500, Suburban, Tahoe 2005 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid (HP2) 2004-2005 GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon, Yukon XL 2005 GMC Sierra Hybrid (PH2) with Vortec 5300 5.3L V-8 Engine (VINs T, Z, B — RPOs LM7, L59, L33 Some customers may comment on a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) On or that the MIL is flashing. An actual engine misfire may or may not be felt along with an incorrect idle speed. Typically this occurs during cold winter months, on cold engine starts. Some vehicles may have been previously serviced for the same condition. Technicians may also find the following DTCs stored with the Tech 2® P0131, P0133, P0134, P0137, P0138, P0140, P0151, P0153, P0154, P0157, P1133, which may be in conjunction with P0171, P0174, P0300 and P1138. Cause Water shock occurs when water droplets are present in the exhaust. The water in the exhaust contacts the sensor element inside the HO2 sensor, causing the HO2 sensor element to crack. Correction Upon diagnostic investigation, the technician may find that the HO2 sensor requires replacement. In addition to replacing the affected HO2 sensor, these vehicles should also be reflashed with the latest PCM calibration. An updated PCM calibration will be available to dealerships as part of TIS 2000 incremental satellite update 11.0 (NAO version 25.010) or greater. Always, make sure your Tech 2 is updated with the latest software version

2003 GMC Truck C 1500 P/U 2WD Engine Knocking or Lifter Noise

Engine Lubrication: All Technical Service Bulletins Engine – Knocking or Lifter Noise File In Section: 06 – Engine/Propulsion System Bulletin No.: 02-06-01-038 Date: December, 2002 TECHNICAL Subject: Engine Knock or Lifter Noise (Replace 0-Ring) Models: 2001-2002 Chevrolet Camaro 2001-2003 Chevrolet Corvette 2001-2002 Pontiac Firebird 2002-2003 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade EXT 2000-2003 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe 2001-2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2002-2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 2000-2003 GMC Yukon, Yukon XL 2001-2003 GMC Sierra with 4.8L, 5.3L, 5.7L or 6.0L V8 Engine (VINs V, T, Z, G, S, N, U – RPOs LR4, LM7, L59, LS1, LS6, LQ9, LQ4) Condition Some customers may comment on an engine tick noise. The distinguishing characteristic of this condition is that it likely will have been present since new, and is typically noticed within the first 161-322 km (100-200 mi). The noise may often be diagnosed as a collapsed lifter . Additionally, the noise may be present at cold start and appear to diminish and then return as the engine warms to operating temperature. This noise is different from other noises that may begin to occur at 3219-4828 km (2000-3000 mi). Cause The 0-ring seal between the oil pump screen and the oil pump may be cut, causing aeration of the oil. Correction
