Either way you'll have to pull the heads off the truck. while it's apart, i'd have the heads sent out for a valve job. they can check them out for cracks and such. good luck..

You have a blown head gasket and or cracked cylinder heads or engine block, but most common is the head gaskets leaking.

    Water can get into oil because of a leaking intake manifold gasket if you have a vortec engine.

Engine oil low light message comes on every 3000 miles and is always quart or more low 2007 chevy suburban 1500


Hard acceleration will burn more oil, also the 5.3l V8s are well known burning oil. so just check the oil every time you fiil up with fuel. Seriously, your already waiting for the tank to fill so grab a towel and check the oil level- if its low put a bit in. Trust me, you dont want to have to replace that engine just because you didnt want to pop the hood!

What kind of engin oil does a 2003 chevy suburban take? Its a 1500, 5.3 litre engine


the factory calls for 5W20W, this saves fuel and the engine is designed to run longer on the thin weight oil, never use any oil thicker than 10W30W, even in a very hot climate or u will damage the rod and the main bearings

I suspect you have had an oil pump failure. To get at the rotory gear oil pump you will have to drop the oil pan. After you take the pan off, ( having drained the oil the oil pump is what the oil pick up line leads into. That pick up assy. is a round shaped disc with a screen inside it. Clean the screen first then the oil pump. Install new oil pan gasket on reassembly. Hope that helps you. Please let me know.

Hopefully the engine was not damaged when the pump broke. If it was you may need a complete engine rebuild, MAYBE.
