Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got a 96 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a 4.3 Vortec
and I have a bad oil leak and I cannot figure out
where the oil is coming from and my pressure in
the radiator water pressure I guess you'd say is
extremely high can't figure out why has a blown
head gasket and fixed it need help ASAP

1 Answer


Possible front or main rear seal (s) Yes the rear one will spatter everywhere hiding in the darkness. Is there water on the dipstick as well? If there is transmission oil in the radiator that's another issue but I think you meant motor oil.
