knocking sounds, smoking, stalling. What's wrong
the mains tho dewayne? sounds like it's time for a new motor~
suspect crank can no longer turn the oil pump....threw a rod and won't be long before you're welding up the oil pan to put on your new short block~
I'm stuck on zero....someone down there don't like me~

The smoke is black and when I checked the oil, it was black too
It also stopped when I was driving. Waiting on AAA now
oh no...threw a rod...happened to my 400 impala engine installed into my 66 pickup truck...had to push it UPHILL on the 880 industrial road off ramp....thank god for parking brakes...that's all I gotta say~
that motor admittedly has 191,000....? I'd start shoppin' for a short block NEAR to the installer who's puttin' it in~....that was just a suggestion...although They aren't givin me points anymore...I appreciate the 20 point reward...'tis a wooden nickel for me~
okay...that one DOES come with a warranty, for what it's worth....who can argue with FREE SHIPPING? Returns: 60 days money back, buyer pays return shipping
but knockin' to beat the band from the heart of the motor sounds injured beyond reconciliation...okay maybe there is a problem with the intake air temp sensor....producing a rich condition...and thus the black smoke you see...but it's like havin' your beard trimmed before the beheading~
The odometer says 62000 miles on it
It was sitting for a long while plus i didn't change the oil when I got it cause it was already full :0/
