dont know what is wrong

You can just hear it. Is this normal for this car? Runs great otherwise. Does this car even have lifters with the overhead cam system? My father in law is selling the car to me and the noise is worring him. He is hard of hearing and does not hear the noise. I told him that I heard the noise when we were out to see them in Dec.

I am about to replace water pump and planning to replace belts and tension pulleys but when is time to do timing chain?

my diagnostic check indicates that cylinder 5 is misfiring.

My G550 was staling randomly on the road when I first got it, the dealer took it in for service and upgraded the software, the problem is better, however the G550 still stalls in the automatic car wash, and the tachometer bobbles during the heavy rinse wash and blower section. Dealer took it back and confirmed water spray or compressed air blown into the wheel wells, would cause the engine to stumble.
The dealer told me nothing was wrong and this was normal because water was getting into the air intake located in the fender area and the recommended cure for this was "Do not take it to the car wash"...?
I find this a tad unusually for any car or truck, more less one that is as seasoned as this one, and one made for off road conditions, it should not have any issue with water splashing in the wheel wells. I find the dealers suggested cure absurd.

I've been having this problem with my car for a few weeks. The acceleration just seems to keep getting worse, along with my gas mileage. Sometimes the car will simply die while I am idling or even slowing down. I tried new spark plugs, using a higher grade of gas, and gas treatments but nothing seems to help! HELP!!

About five months ago I had a transmission flush done. There's only 70,000 miles on the car. Had no trouble with trans before flush. This happened about four months after service. This is a large leak and happened after a trip of about 70 miles. I drive the car only 2 or 3 times a week.

I jumped wire between pins CG and TC and got code (flashes): 3 1 5 2

it has a odd miss it is not a steady miss it will idle fine then for a short time it will sputter miss sorta like a shock feel a bit then go away then it will return again also the service engine soon will light up but once i rev it up to 3000 rpms and hold it for 15 seconds or so it will go away and it does go off when i drive it to but of course it will come on again not it does run ok speed uphill around town goes ok any help will be great thanks
