Question about 1996 Chevrolet C1500

2 Answers

I have a 1996 Chevy C1500 5.0L Vortec V8. I lost oil pressure and found water in the oil. Replaced oil and filter so we could start the engine again. Regained oil pressure, no noise, ran smooth, no bubbles in coolant, no water/steam from exhaust. I think I've ruled out a head or head gasket problem. My theory is intake gasket leaking into lifter valley in to the oil pan. Looking for opinions.

Next step is to remove the intake, you are on the right track, worse i ever found was a cracke block, but that was in a 61 t-bird which was repaired with jb weld ten yrs ago and still holding, but the intake gasket sounds right

The 1990's chevy trucks(all of them) had fuel pump and grounding problems:

1. Check the fuel pump ground strap next to the gas tank as it could be broken from the connector or just loose.

2. Have a fuel pressure test done on the fuel lines at the engine top. (Note: if there isn't enough fuel pressure, replace the fuel pump.)

If the engine is turning over than none of the things you replaced will make the engine"start". You will need to check for fuel pressure and spark first.

The freeze plug you replaced was due to rust or was it pushed out by freezing temperature? These plugs are not designed to protect the engine block from cracking during freezing temperatures, they are there to remove the sand from the block after casting it. I would drain your system completely and flush out the radiator thouroughly and fill with plain water, then run the engine and see if oil gets in the water, if it does and the plug was out due to freeze, then your block is probably cracked, although you could just have a head gasket leak. Oil pressure (40psi) is higher then water pressure (17psi), so getting oil in the water is always more prominent than the other way around. Flush out the system and let me know if oil returns to the water, hope this helps
