Truck is a 99 5.9 auto. I recently heard a ticking sound when I shut the engine down. It happens at the same time the belt squeak is happening. I don't know if this has happened before (first time I heard it) but it makes a ticking sound about three times, tick,tick,tick and thats it. It is not very loud. I am not having any problems at all with the truck and it is running great. Is this just a normal sound at shut down?

It is happening at the same time as the belt noise at shut down. It does not sound like it is coming from there. It sounds like it is coming from lower on the engine. I do nothear it at any other times..

maybe get one of those gator belts, so squeeking stops, then, maybe you will be able to find the noise easier without the squeeking of the belt

It's really not bothering me. I just wanted to make sure it was a normal sound and not something going wrong.
