Question about Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

My 58 Chevy 348 engine is holding oil in the upper part of the engine I've checked the oil before starting and it is full but after approx. 2 min. running the oil pressure is gone. I check the oil again and there is no oil in the oil pan after it sits awhile the oil pan fills back up with oil. I've pulled the valve covers and it looks clean on the inside. Any suggestions? I've also ran diesel fuel through the drain holes and the heads and it comes out the oil pan clean. Thanks, Bobby

Try using high pressure air to blow out oil returns. The engine may have sludge build up due to foreign material sticking in oil drains from a 52 year old chevy. Love that engine. It was good in it's day! Good luck!

How much oil does a 94 corsica 3.1 v-6 with filter hold


My info for engine oil and filter change, 4.5 quarts. You could put in about 4 quarts, start the engine let oil circulate, kill the engine, let the oil settle for a bit, check oil level on dipstick. Add oil to the full mark on dipstick, hopefully the dipstick is correct.
I looked at info on chevy Corsica.

Got a 2001 chevy venture 3.4.. got 2 codes po171 & p1189. An my temp gauge jumps never over heatin but going down. Any suggestions?


171 is bank one lean. 1189 is the oil sending unit. Start with 1189. Replace the oil sending unit. They always fail. Never had to fix wires for these. Probably leaking oil anyways. 171, Two places to look on these 3.4/3.1 engines. First is the vacuum lines and rubber fittings. Best to check them all, but bank one is one the radiator side of the engine. Also the intake upper plenum is known to crack around the bolts. Use WD40 . start the engine and spray it around the intake. If it starts running better, you have a crack or bad gasket. Fix as necessary.

Had an oil change about a month ago and about 5 weeks later motor is gone. No oil light came on, no oil leaks


WELL NO OIL LEAKS.WARRANTY MIGHT COVER IT BUT YOU NEED TO SHOW ALL OIL CHANGE RECEIPTS.ALSO YOU HAVE TO USE GM MOTOR OIL LIKE 5W - 30 VALVOLINE USE GM OIL FILTERS.THEY WILL CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU BEEN KEEPING UP WITH SERVICE MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE SCHEDULES.CHECK YOUR OIL LEVEL ON DIP STICK SHOULD BE AT FULL MARK LINE. THE CHEVY COBALT LS LT LTZ 2.2 ENGINE HOLDS 5.0 QUARTS OF OIL WITH NEW FILTER AND CHEVY COBALT SS SC HOLDS 6.0 QUARTS WITH NEW FILTER.IF OIL LEVEL LOOK OKAY.CHECK ON INTERNET FOR ANY RECALLS OR ANY TROUBLE WITH EARLY OIL PUMP FAILURE.

1996 chevy s10 4.3 vortex lifters knocking at start up but goes away after 10 minutes idling. changed oil and filter oil pump reads 58-60psi at idle and seems to be working.


High milage? Try engine cleaner, run for couple hundred miles and then use an additive like Restore. If it's just dirt this may help. Make sure you are using the correct viscosity oil for winter temps. If it's from wear only parts replacement will fix it.
