Some of you probably remember my old 93 Blazer.  The 2dr Tahoe looking one.  I sold that truck to my dad a while ago when I got the black Tahoe.

A few months ago my dad parked it because "something was wrong with the brakes"...meaning it probably needed front pads and rotors, lol.  He didn't start it and the worthless Optima Red Top (never again) died.  I took it out and charged it (takes forever), then started the truck up to let it run.  This has happened before when he parked it and didn't use it for whatever reason, i forget what the last thing he had to get fixed was.

Anyway, I ran it for about 25 minutes while a guy showed up here to buy a pair of old snow tires I had on CL.  At this point the truck started right up and had run fine.  Also, before starting it, I checked the oil and the coolant, the coolant was a little low so I topped it off (I think the lower hose seeps at the clamp). The oil was dirty-ish but full. Suddenly I hear a knock that sounded distinctly lower end, and I ran over and shut it off.  Told my father and showed him what happened, started it quick for a couple seconds and shut it off, still knocked.

My question is, I am to assume that since there is a knock present, that this engine hath shat the bed?  I just wanted to be sure here.  This engine has something like 280K on it, I need to go and look. I am almost certain my friggin' father drove the truck in the style of "put gas in it, just replace stuff if it breaks".  I don't know how many miles were on the oil change.  I'm assuming the pump pickup got clogged with sludge/crap from being dirty and also sitting, and when I ran it for the 25 minutes, it spun a main.  I have never had this happen before in my presence, then again, I change my oil all the time, so...

I don't know if the truck will be fixed or not.  It's not completely trashed, and my dad drove it all the time until he parked it, but it has lower quarter and rocker rust as well as in some other typical 2dr areas, broken driver's seat, and some other nickel and dime crap done to it that I can't remember.  I'm just completely bullshit because over the years I owned that stupid thing I must've put 12 grand into it, and now it's dead.  I had some idiot kid on a motorcycle lane split and slam into the driver's side, and instead of putting the money his insurance company paid me toward a new truck, I spent it on having it fixed and the entire driver's side repainted. It does have the expensive "14sf" 3/4 ton six lug rear end swap done with the u-bolt flip kit, but that fiasco must have cost 1500 bucks in the end, and I got a really good deal on the raw, used rear end through a friend that had been storing it in his shed. The trans. was done at some point, my dad had a bunch of new parts put in it after I sold it to him, it was in three movies, etc. It just sucks.

TBI 350's are a dime a dozen and easy to swap. Wink

There's an off chance that the flex plate could have cracked.  Pull the TCC cover and have a look at it.

If it completely broke, it'll sound like this

OMG I forgot that video! LOL! "S'ready for the dumpsterrrr...." I'll look into it but it doesn't have that "rattly overtone" like that noise in the video. Maybe I'll take a video of this truck.

I realize that it's cheap to get a used 350 for the truck but then it has to get put in there someplace at a shop (It's pretty much out of the question for me trying to swap that out or anyone doing it here) and then there'll still be other things that need fixing on it. You can get a decent 2001ish Tahoe for like 3500 bucks and older ones for less. lol.

We'll see what happens...
