2014 Camaro 1LT Cricket Noise

It's a V6 Automatic Trans. Once started it makes a
Cricket noise that seems to be coming from the engine and not the belt area. Also, the cricket noise picks up when I'm driving and I hit the gas pedal. When I take my foot off the gas, it goes away it seems. Does anyone else with the 2014 have this issue? Any suggestions? Thanks.

I had it on my 10. It was the belt rubbing on my ac compressor if I remember right. I waited too long to get it checked out and it broke a piece off... Replacing that was expensive. Get it checked out asap

The V6 cars have a high pressure injection pump in the driver side cylinder head. It makes a chirping noise that increases with speed, which is perfectly normal as its pressurizing fuel to well over 1,000 PSI at times. This may or may not be the noise you are hearing, however.

Thank you for replying Floppy and Simplegreen. I was told it is the high pressure fuel pump. Just seems like a brand new sports car should not make a noise like that. Takes away from the sound of the engine.

EHyde1,

Very sorry to hear about the noise you're hearing. I certainly understand the displeasure you're feeling, especially with a new vehicle. I realize you're seeking community opinions, and wanted to extend an offer of assistance so feel free to contact me privately and we can get the process involving an official diagnosis started (if needed).

Sincerely,

William R.

I know I'm late, but I'm having the same issue with my 2013 Ls. Did you figure out what it was?

Hey everyone, I have the same issue with my 2015 V6. Been doing it ever since I got the car. Its a strange sound and is irritating when it comes up.
