So I have a 1994 Chevrolet CK1500 V6 (4.3L) that runs **horrible**. We had originally thought it was the head gaskets and had them replaced. Well it helped for a couple days and its been driven here and there with an obvious problem involving coolant getting into the oil.

I've been offered a job out of state and it would be great if I could just get the engine replaced in the truck so I can have a truck since I'm moving to a new city and could use it to take home furniture, etc...

Any advice or if you think you may be able to 100% diagnose what IS the problem with it, I'm in Douglasville and would be willing to pay you.

Please let me know and Thank You!

If it overheated, the heads might have warped in which case just a gasket will not help... Only a machine shop can.

Yeah this is what I'm thinking. This is why I'm leaning more towards an engine replacement :)

Thanks for the reply!
