Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

Problem with engine

I have a 98 Chevy Blazer 4wd. I recently took my car to have the upper gasket replaced. After doing this when I took the engine home, after a couple of days the oil pressure gauge would stay at zero and a loud knocking noise started to occur. The mechanic told me that there was nothing I could do to fix this problem and that I need to rebuild or buy a brand new engine. What do I do?

    Well, I payed for them to have the intake gasket changed and get an the oil changed also. The crazy thing is that when I took it to someone else when they told me that I had to rebuild the engine and there was nothing that they could do, another mechanic showed me what the oil looked like before he changed it. It did not even look as thick as oil and it was black, it was as thin as water!

    When I do my oil changes now, I do it alittle before 3,000 miles and I put one quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer with it. The noise is so horrible.

I had the intake gasket replace. I get an oil change before 3,000 miles because the sound is so horrible. What I do now is put 20w-50 oil and put also a bottle of Lucas Oil Stablizer to help. The crazy thing is that I payed for them to do an oil change after the intake was replaced. When I changed the oil after they did this job, it was not even oil, it was almost as thin as water and it was black.

check routing of ignition wires--especially on cylinder #6. wires too close to engine may leak sparks. May want to buy new wires if yours are old.

89-98 chevy blazer


It's not worth doing all that conversion, buy the time you spend the time and money to convert the 89 4.3 to work on the 98 blazer, it would be cheaper to install a 98 vortec rebuild. The 89 4.3 have a TBI fuel injection system and the ecm on the 98 will not work and the bad news is that the ecm on the 98 also controls the transmission shift points and the 89 will not, so even if you swap the ecm to have the 89 4.3 engine work. the transmission will not shift. Sorry for the bad news but it would be cheaper to replace the 98 engine with the years of 1996 to 2001. Good luck and hope this helps.

How much will it cost for a mechanic to change oil pan gasket on my 1998 chevy blazer 4wd big v6 engine?


Gasket = $35 (permatex rubber)
Labor - my manual says 3 hours.
You'll have to be responsible for figuring out the labor price per hour depending on where you are located.
In MI, a garage is about $50/hr, and dealership = $85/hr
CA might be $95/$150/hr.

Parts are minimal on the job - its all labor.
Figure in about $20 for shop supplies... gasket remover, sealant, rags, etc.
