V6 Major Motor Problems

9,900 miles and this morning I started hearing a LOUD ticking noise coming from the engine bay. Brought it in and the mechanics dont know yet but they said it could be a major problem. It made the noise in every gear around 2k RPMs. It definitely was not the direct injection either. Hopefully its just a loose flywheel. Regardless I cant believe I already have what could be a major problem at such low mileage.

1 oil change, BONE stock car driven mostly on the highway. I got 2k off the initial purchase, I'm seriously considering trading it up as long as I dont take more than a 2k hit.



>=[

UPDATE:

My cars been in the shop since the 16th and all they've told me so far is that they know the noise is coming from the motor and that it is probably a major issue...

Had a nice talk just now with CamaroDriver as well who is having a similar issue and it seems like I'm headed towards the same track as he is.

There's a guy on the G8 forum that had a similar noise with his cadillac. He was on the G8 board because the caddy had the same LY7 engine as our G8s do. Your's has the same block and a different upper so some parts may be the same.

His issue was the timing belt had stretched out and wrecked some stuff (I don't recall exactly what). He is having to do a full rebuild on the engine to fix it.

One issue is not enough to drop a car. Especially while you're still under full warranty. At least not imo...

Let them figure out what it is...they will....fix it. And off you go on your merry way.

I don't believe this V6 has a timing belt. It's a chain.

Ever hear of a part failing? It's under warranty so it's not going to cost you anything, unless the dealer determines you beat the hell out of it.

If you lose faith that easy you should sell it. Do you think million dollar super cars don't have parts that fail?

That's true ,but it seems to be a recurring theme with the V-6. I know the traverse is having more than it's fair share of problems also with the same motor.

Hope everything works out but that's def not a reason to drop a great car. Get it fixed for free then start thinking about things when the warranty runs out. You've only gotten one oil change so far? How many miles were on it when you first did it?

Op, I've got as much experience with the 3.6L as any. '04 SRX and '07 SRX.
My '04 with 1200 miles started to make loud whirring wounds. Camshafts machined incorrectly. Replaced under warranty all was well.
My '07 had to having the timing chain replaced. Done under warranty and no further problems.
My guess is timing belt or could be as bad as another guy here that had scored bearings.

Funny thing about the 3.6L and the timing chain. When the engine came out Cadillac told us how much better it was than the 3.2L 54 degree motor and that since it had timing chains instead of belts there wouldn't be any extra maintenance every 60K miles. I guess it hasn't exactly worked out that way.

9,900 miles and only one oil change!? Does that strike anyone else as odd? I mean I could understand if it was 30,000 miles to 39,900 miles with one oil change but during the first 10k, I would have expected more than one oil change

Anywho, hope it's nothing serious. Keep us posted.

You have a problem that could be serious, you also could have a problem that's not serious at all so let's slow down on the "this is the end of the Camaro world!" until you get an actual cause for the issue.

Yes. To each their own though right?

Quite right. I meant to say chain. They've been using chains for a while now.

I was reading a thread on here about another v6 with what sounds to be a similar problem as yours. He was saying that his car started making a ticking noise, then got louder. Brought it to the dealer and turned out to be a dry main bearing. Hopefully your problem isn't this bad. Good luck.

Heck, I purchased a brand new porsche 911 and the high pressure fuel pump failed the second time I drove the car.

Sunday my battery died on my Camaro which has a mere 2900 miles on it.

This is why we have warranty's...

I know guys its just hard I'm only 20 and I've been saving for a car since I was 16, this is the biggest single purchase in my life so far. Its just hard when essentially all my adult life I've been waiting for it and now its all messed up. I didnt even beat on it!

We'll see what happens though, I'll keep updating as it goes just in case any other V6ers were curious or are having similar problems.

Warranty + dealer + mechanics = problem solved. Just get it fixed and move on, man...the chicks are waiting so don't let your dobber down! And don't be so quick to give up on the Camaro, OK?

broham, don't throw in the towel for a single problem with the car. it's going to be fixed under warranty and they'll give you a shitty aveo or something to drive around in while they figure it out.

however, if you are using it as a scape goat to get a v8 .. by all means..

I will say one thing. With all the problems I've had with mine over the last year and I haven't unloaded mine yet. You should a least hang in there until you find out what's up.
It's not like your going to say "don't fix it. I'm just going to get rid of it". You have to get it fixed anyhow before you would unload it.

No it does not... if the oil life monitor is tracking how the car is being driven, and recommended the oil be changed at 9k, then he is following the recommendations of the manufacturer.... personally, the oil life monitor in my car recommended my 1st oil change be done at 11,000 miles based on my driving habits.... which I did..... the oil that came out looked fine..... but that is a different thread...
