Did it have synthetic oil in it before? If so you don't use conventional oil. Check owners manual to see if it came with synthetic.

Replaced transmission in 97 gmc Sierra 5.7 vortec and it is not working. I know transmission was good

Did you make sure the convertor was fully seated on the trans input shaft (3 clicks)? After trans was bolted to block, there should have been a gap between convertor and flexplate (the convertor bolts should have drawn the two together). If not, you probably wiped out the drive tangs for the trans oil pump when you started vehicle (wasn't engaged properly). Hopefully not.

I have a 97 jeep grand Cherokee with a 98 motor same tranny. That thing is burning 4-5 quartz every 150-200 miles. Its not in the coolant an its not smoking. An no oil leaks. i like to now why its...

at what speeds? 50 , 90 (we have 85mph highway in texas)
pCV working,? if not it may burn oil.

ok oil can not just go away , like tax money out of pocketes or deflation.
not ever.
1: stolen oil, nah.
2: burns it, sure.
3: leaks it , no you'd see it at every stop.
4: leaks it to cooling system., no. the down draft 02 does nothing but checks cat for health so does nothing, releated to this.

it's burning it. but you dont see it because you are not following you.
I see it, i smell it.

bad rings.
bad valve seals.
or PVC packed and crank case pressures on the moon(high)
or all three, is like par for course on any 97./98
its old.
how many miles on it, bet you dont know, but.//????

Hi i have a 97 chevy with the vortec 5.7 with 312.556 and i was thinking of using seafoam on my engine because of carbon build up but i also heard with that many miles seafoam would damage my engine.

Seafoam added to fuel should not cause problems. You may find those who say oil additives such as Marvel Mystery oil may clean engine deposits leading to excessive oil consumption/smoking. That's a lot of miles for any engine without an overhaul. Good luck.

I have a 1995 K2500 that had the motor changed to a HD 383 Stroker before I bought it / It also has vortec heads. The oil pressure seems really low to me. About 2 to 5 lbs at idle. About 30 to 35 lb

That will burn out the engines bearings, if it knocks at all it is to late. Do verify the reading with a mechanical gauge if you haven't done so already. The rule is this at least 10-15 pounds at idle with hot oil, 10 PSI per 1000 RPM of engine speed. If engine is not knocking then replace the oil pump with a high pressure high volume pump.

You could take ou the fuel pump relay and replace it with another one just like it from the fuse box under the hood. That will let you know if the relay is bad.

Oil pressure problem

Get a haynes manuel at advance auto parts. It will tell you everything you need to know to get the oil pump off, which is what the problem seems to be.
