Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500
If after you have done the suggested gasket replacement you still have a problem try K and W block sealer. It may slightly plug up your radiator but it does wonders for small cracks.
For the first few days after gasket replacement fill with water only. This will prevent antifreeze from getting into your motor if there is still a slight problem. You really should have it magnafluxed to be on the safe side.

Sounds like a blown head gasket after runing with this problem then letting it set the water sized the piston rings to the cylinder walls

Sounds like either a blown head gasket, a cracked head, or a cracked block. The solution would be to determine where the coolant is getting into the oil and address that problem.

Ok could be a blown head gasket or cracked head/block. but the 99.9%
cause is the lower intake gaskets have failed. all of that era 6 and 8 clyinder engines had this happen at least once in their life time. they leak externally and internally into the cam galley, mixing the fluids and damaging the engine. fel-pro has a revised gasket set called the perma-pro the o-rings are white instead of orange in the gaskets, these are plastic and rubber low-tourqe seals instead of the older style.

I just ran into his i changed the intake manifold gasket , these models are know to do this ,if your having overheating issuses then more than likely it may be the head gasket but like the ohter problem solver said 99.9% of the time its the intake gaset, make sure you run a motor flush thru it aswell and change the oil you should be good to go

Tips for a great answer:
Place the drain pan under the radiator petcock. Open the petcock and allow the antifreeze to drain. If the drain pan is clean and the antifreeze is less than five years old, you can reuse the antifreeze.
Place the block of wood on the floor jack. Slide the jack under the engine and raise the engine slightly. Unbolt and remove the front engine mount. On the 4A-GE engine, loosen the power steering and air conditioning belts by loosening the adjusting nuts or bolts on the slider bracket and sliding the accessory toward the engine. Remove the belts.
3Loosen the water pump pulley bolts with the appropriate socket. Loosen the alternator locking bolt and the pivot nut. Push the alternator toward the engine to loosen the tension on the belt. Lift the belt off the pulleys.
Remove the four bolts on the water pump pulley using the appropriate socket. Remove the water pump pulley. Disconnect the water inlet and bypass hoses from the inlet pipe using a screwdriver or pliers, depending on the type of clamp used.
Disconnect the water inlet pipe by removing the two clamp bolts and the two nuts behind the pump. Remove the inlet pipe. Remove the O-ring from the back of the pump. Remove the mounting bolt on the oil dipstick tube. Remove the tube and the dipstick. Plug the hole with a rag so that debris doesn't get into the crankcase and contaminate the oil.
Remove the upper and middle timing belt covers. Remove the water pump retaining bolts and pull the pump off the engine. Take care not to get any antifreeze on the timing belt.
Place the O-ring in its groove on the block. Install the water pump and tighten the bolts to 11 ft.-lbs. of torque. Reinstall the timing belt covers. Make sure they are seated properly and not touching the timing belt.
Coat a new oil dipstick O-ring with engine oil. Slide it on the dipstick. Reinstall the dipstick and the retaining bolt. Tighten the bolt to 82 in.-lbs. of torque. Place a new O-ring on the inlet pipe for the water pump. Reinstall the inlet pipe. Attach the clamps and bolts that hold the pipe in place. Tighten the bolts to 8 ft.-lbs. of torque.
Reconnect the inlet and bypass hoses to the pipe. Install the water pump pulley. Tighten the four pulley bolts enough to hold everything in place. Reinstall all the accessory drive belts and adjust the tension properly. You should be able to turn the belts 90 degrees when they are at the correct tension. The water pump should resist turning. Tighten the water pump pulley bolts to 17 ft.-lbs. of torque. Reinstall the engine mount. Tighten the petcock on the radiator. Refill the radiator.
