Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Chevy Silverado V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles
I bought this truck used from a dealer. At first all I had wrong was a constant antifreeze leak (wasn't going in oil) friend put something in it and that leak has stopped. I took it to have oil changed and ever since I have had an obvious oil leak (puddle on ground when parked, steady drop). Friend of mine changed the oil filter, the oil plug and oil pressure sensor unit (?), With none of this stopping leak. I have to add oil about every 2 weeks and was wondering what was the next thing to do. I haven't had it to a shop because I don't have the money for a major overhaul right now and I can't afford to part with it for weeks (my only ride and I am only bread winner in house), single mom 3 kids.
Also, when standing outside of truck between cab and bed, are you suppose to hear a hissing noise? Someone told me it was the fuel pump I was hearing and it is normal.
Thanks for any input.
have the same problem?
