I have a 2007 chevrolet silverado and my service airbag light came on. I was out camping with the sterio going and ran the batt low but their was enough juice to restart after about 10 min. On the way home the service light stayed on and i just fixed the problem which was a fuse under the hood in the main fuse pannel. It is very common due to low voltage on start up to blow a 15 amp fuse.

By your description, yes your problem may be in the oil pump, pickup screen. and/or clogged oil channels going into your valve cover /upper valve chamber. The ticking you hear is on the valve lifters and/or rocker arm.

Remove a valve cover, start the engine and see if an ample flow of oil is reaching the valves. Turn off the engine and inspect the oil inlet and return channels for sludge build up.

Not knowing your specifics I don't know where the oil sensor is located but it is probably accurate. Chev uses a side mount and internal oil pump if I recall. Either way yo may have to drop the oil pan to inspect and clean the pickup screen.

If the issue is in the oil pump it could be a damaged cam lever or pump chamber is clogged with grease-like debris. An old shade tree mechanic solution( which I have used successfully several times) was to warm the engine, shut it off, drain and save the new oil then refill with a gallon of diesel or kerosene to dissolve clogged oil chambers/channels. Run in place for 5-10 minutes or until the tapping goes away. Drain the kerosene and check for metal slivers, globs of sludge etc.This is at your own risk because if you have worn bearings that are only being held in place by sludge it could throw one. I suspect excessive sludge. This is a possible solution and if not resolved promptly, your valve guides will wear quickly and you'll be looking at an engine tear down.

The next step would be to remove the oil pump and inspect for clogs or wear. Note there may be a port directly on the pump which can be used to attach a meter for oil pressure at the pump--check your shop manual for your model. As an alternative you can add a half gallon directly to the oil and drive for 15+ miles but you will have to drain that oil/kerosene mixture and dispose of it. Good Luck.

Could be a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump..

My opinion...

Year? Miles?

There's no way I'd dive into a "HEAD GASKET"
diagnosis without pressure testing the cooling
system and (wet/dry) COMPRESSION testing
the whole engine...

Even if it is a "HEAD GASKET"... the entire engine
might be ready for a REFRESH... and tossing a new
Head gasket into a TIRED ENGINE not insubstantial
(a lot of wasted time & money)...

Come back with some compression numbers...

but don't bother with any of this if your engine oil has water in it.

(in my opinion)

hey u could have a blown headgasket if u have white smoke. i recommend u do a simple block test. its a bottle u fill up a quarter way with this fluid u buy at part store in a kit called block test. u are checkin for combistion chamber gases in cooling system. u need lower the coolant level a bit so it doesnt get into the test tube an run eng at idle put the tool over the radiator or ur coolant fill resevoir an see if ir fluid changes color meaning theres a fault in head gaskets.

Question did u buy used? Have you checked that the fuse and the CIG lighter right for vehicle and 3 any after market electronics in dash. Stereo CD DVD etc? Before I answer.

I have to put number 2 fuse in to open back hatch power lock. All the other power locks work for doors without it not rearchatch. But its the horn so.... My horn blows and its not thevhorn relay in glove compartment because it blows. Its the padding that's gone in steering wheel.

Is your 3rd light working? If so check changing hazard switch turn signal assembly. It's inherent of 94 to 98 Chevy blazers. Don't ask me why but that's what I found in researching ..check for yours. I saw Chevy so I responded to you

It sounds like you have a bad brake problem. smoke from the frt brakes is bad! the following are the things to check and repair.
(1) front brake calipers may be frozen

(3) hard lines may have damage?
(4) master cylinder may not be releasing fluid

You can use any good antifreeze from the parts store or store. Just be sure it is antifreeze and I would only use the 100% stuff not the 50/50 mix.
