On my 93 1500 350 TBI with 143,000 niles, I just had the tranny
rebuilt. Got it out of the shop yesterday. I was driving around
getting my emissions test. I passed emission. The guy pulls my truck
out of the emissions testing bay and all of a sudden it's knocking.
Now it knocks upon start-up and doesn't get better after it warm.
Won't hurt if I put heavier weight oil in there will it? Just for
kicks and giggles.
My oil pressure is real low. Under accelration I can get it up to
about 20-30. Someone suggested main bearing is gone. I heard oil pumps
don't fail often.
I'm thinking I should drive it until it croaks. Been without the truck
for a long time. I've got another 350 out in the shed ready and on
I've got extra parts from a third engine was well.
