There is most likely a crack,or hole in one of the pistons in the engine.

Had a knocking noise in the bottom end replace with short block now getting a lot of oil in the intake causing to blow white oil smoke. Double check all hoses with pcv and all hose are hooked up correctly.

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.

Car overheats while idleing fan not turning on ac not blowing


Check the Fan switch at the bottom of the radiator, if you disconnect it and have a power feed to the switch then it isn't a fuse.Bridge the terminals and if the fan comes on then the fault is probably the switch.

Sounds like the engine can't breath,
make sure pcv valve is good,or oil cap is vented.
your engine is building up pressure and has no where to vent,so it blows the easiest thing,the dip stick

No timeing marks on a chevy 383 stroker engine


you could bring it up on tdc on comp stroke and make your own mark on crank pulley and block then at least you know where tdc is and google some 383's that have close to same equip as you and see what degree they are running or just play with it and see how it runs .
