White paste or filmy substance is usually an indication of water getting into the oil so not a good thing. Could be a head gasket going out or other problem but one that needs attention pretty quickly.
Good Luck

My 04 Tahoe is blowing out white smoke when I crank it. I seem to be using a lot of oil and antifreeze but I don't see a leak on the ground. Will it harm the engine if I continue to drive?

yes you can cause mechanical damage. have the motor checked out. the reason you don`t see anything on the ground is your burning oil and water, not to mention the excessive emissions that you can be fine for plus your doing damage to the catalytic converter.

Leaking oil tahoe

The rear seal of the engine could have started to leak but a loose oil pan or damaged oil filter could be a factor.

White smoke coming from tail pipe and oil smells like gas

HI. These indicators are strong beacons that point to your head gaskets. They have ruptured or shrunk, due to old age. The necessary actions are to have the head gaskets replaced, asap. This extensive procedure will correct the issue.
Essentially, the ruptured gaskets are allowing the oil gas mixture, which is occurring inside the cylinder chambers. The white smoke is the coolant that is also exposed to the chamber, as well. This will cause compression issues as well. Have this serious issue repaired, asap.

I need the fuel system diagram for a 1998 Chevy Tahoe w/ 5.7L gasoline engine

Dark green provides power to fuel pump relay from the ECU. Orange wire at fuel pump relay is power at all time and is provide from the ECM/Bat Fuse at fuse block (Left side of dash). It also connects to the fuel pump oil pressure switch. The grey wire at relay provides power to the fuel pump and fuel pum oil pressure switch. The red plug thats tape to harness from relay/fuse center is the prime connector..

I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. for the past 6 months

without hearing exact noise it is hard to diagnose. these vehicles had a normal cold start knocking noise due to the low friction rings used allowed piston some extra movement. when carbon builds up on pistons it gets worse will go away after about a minute running. it does not affect life of engine or performance. i think this may be noise you hear. or possible it is a lifter leaking down and taking a while to pump up
