CHEVROLET SILVERADO BATTERY PROBLEM

1997 Chevrolet Silverado • 212,000 miles

I just replaced head gaskets and now at idle it makes a loud chirping noise. I thought it was the bellt so I took it off and it still does it. It sounds like it coming from passenger side valve cover. Any help would be appreciated

Oil may not have come up the push rod to lube the rocker

how long has it run?

Did you change the oil?

I had it idleing for about an hour then I took it for a test drive and it died. I thought I had a bad battery so I replaced the battery then when I started it up is when it started making the noise yea I changed oil.

What is the oil pressure? I am thinking maybe a lifter is bad not sending oil to a rocker arm

The oilpressure is reading 40lbs.
