Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Chevy Truck V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 128 miles
This motor only has 128 miles on it with a short block. The oil pressure dropped from #40 tp #10 and I imediatly parked it. Upon ck. Ing the dip stick it showed 3Qts. Low. Filled the motor oil to normal and now only have 20# of oil pressure. Could I have spun a cam bearing or what. I was told the installer was suppose to break in the camshaft. What's involved in breaking in a camshaft. What other problems could be lurking. Is it possible that the engine was rebuilt with wrong size pistons and/or rings.
With all the brand NEW cars and trucks I've bought over the yrs. I've never had a problem with break-in.
Any and all replys will be greatly appreciated as I'm at a lose as to what's next.
Thank you in advance
