Well blue smoke is almost always oil burning. It could be rings allowing pressure into the crankcase or valve guides allowing oil to leak into the cylinders. Most of the time a leaking head gasket causes problems with the cooling system. The engine can burn oil and not show oily spark plugs for a long time.
you might want to keep an eye on the oil pressure 30 to40 lbs is ok at idle but i like to see 60 or more the problem with antifreeze in the crank case is it will wipe the babit from the barrings if
it has gone that far. meaning did he run the truck with the antifreeze in the crank case and if so
its not a really good idea. ive seen worse. just keep an eye on the pressure that will tell the hole story other than that you shooed have no problems at all
hope this helps you good luck bob
by the way babit is a thin layer that's put on the barring because it is very slippery with oil
Ok, You are going to have to rebuild the motor that is a given. There are several possible problems that could cause this. Blown head gasket, Cracked Head, Cracked Block, a hole rubbed in the timing chain cover if a timing chain guide came free. I had a Nissan do this. A couple of the holes that the retaining bolts go in for the timing chain guide open directly into a water channel and were letting Anti Freeze run free as well as a hole being ground into the aluminum cover over the timing chain by the chain flopping around. You won't know until you open it up and inspect everything.
Timing chain set $25, timing cover gasket set $15, 5qts of oil and filter $20, one gallon of antifreeze $8 take about three hours to do, about $80 an hour for labor if you take it to someone. Think about replacing waterpump too, be another $25.
If you are losing antifreeze out of the water pump, then that is a sympton telling you it's time to replace the water pump. When you say the timing belt is slashed up, do you mean the serpentine belt that runs the power steering pump, ac pump, alternator, and water pump or have you actually torn the engine apart enough to see the timing belt?
If you in fact mean the serpentine belt, chances are it's torn up because either antifreeze got on the belt making it slick enough to get off track and when they get off track, they can get slashed up pretty quick.
