My truck had been sitting for abt a year, due to suspension. New fluids, battery, spark plugs, pullies(2), flywheel, starter...general overhaul. Lol. When i start it it has this extremely loud knock, but it's not like metal hitting, and a squeal from hell!! Could it b timing?

Charging System

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2012  250000 miles
First start of the day charging system well above 14. Mid day start outside air temp above 80°. On start up 14 on Guage after a few minute Guage starts dropping to below 11. Killed engine and restart back to 14 but hard to start. (Lagging). . . This has happened 4 days in a row. Im afraid my battery which is brand new or my starter is gonna go out. Any ideas why ?
