Need some additional information before I can give you an accurate answer.
For example, does the nock begin at a cold start and go away after a few minutes?
It could be almost anything. I do know however from personal experience that Silverados have issues with lifters.
It sounds like you have a single hydraulic lifter that is not filling with oil. The resulting sound is a fast knock.
Send me a PM with the details.
