You need to swap in a LS3 engine. Only solution


That's not good. Are you losing coolant? Sounds like it might be time for an engine rebuild. HTH. -Jim

Time for a new engine or a rebuild of the one you have. Metal in the oil is very bad.

I have a Chevrolet Camaro 1999 done 50,000 miles , just recently started making a whining noise when I put my foot on the gas, sounds a bit like driving an electric car.
