I have a b2000 and when driving the other day I noticed a tapping noise and the oil light came on so I stop. Opened the hood and saw smoke and oil was everywhere. What would be the cost to replace both or which ever one is blown

Hi there,

This is very hard to say, first you better clean it down and re fill the oil. Start it up and see where the oil is leaking from. If the engine is making any odd noises, I would do am oil pressure test and a comp test first to determine how much damage nay have been done'
