Default 1998 chevrolet k1500 z71 $1600 *needs some work*

Truck runs, drives, tranny shifts. Has an oil leak from the rear of the engine - most likely the rear main seal. Has rust here and there but not bad and a dent or two. Everything underneath is solid including the frame. The 4x4 is push button and it works. It comes with a spare hood, toolbox, fender flares still new in the box, and it also has brand new tires on it with some wider aftermarket wheels. It's got a true dual straight pipe exhaust out to 3.5 inch tips and it's pretty loud. Has the 3rd door with leather seats. Sliding window in the back and the tailgate latches. Body has 295k, but I was told it's not the original engine and transmission.

Whats New:
-Brake booster
-Fuel tank
-Fuel pump
-Spark plugs & plug wires
-Fuel injectors cleaned
-o2 sensor
-New brakes
-Probably more things I cant think of right now, but I have all the receipts for all the parts that were bought and put on it.
-Comes with towing mirrors already installed and I also have the stock mirrors.
-The rear leaf springs are pretty beefy so it's good for hauling heavy loads.

The bad things:
-Needs a new door panel on the driver's side.
-Interior needs to be cleaned
-Airbag light & ABS light are on haven't checked it out either so don't know why.
-The brakes could be bled
-The driver's side door has a small dent
-The right rear of the bed has a minor dent.
-Windshield has a crack but not bad.
-The fan blows on all speed settings, but only blows through defrost vents and floor vents.

I was going to just throw a rebuilt or used motor in the truck without fixing the oil leak but I don't have the money now.

Asking "anyone?" is bumping. Which he did several hours after adding the pics. You go be stupid somewhere else.

Adding pics to his original post via the edit link would not have been bumping, adding pics on a new post to BUMP the thread to the top is bumping.

Here's another free bump for you. I noticed that your for sale ad differs in a few ways from your post under Chevy Tech. I'll help you out by adding what you said there right on here for you, as I'm sure you're not trying to screw someone and it was just an oversight.

You don't mention in your for sale ad about the 0 oil pressure that you verified with a mechanical gauge, or about the "exhaust valve noise" after running it with 0 oil pressure, and also about the oil leaking on the ground and puddling all the way back to the rear tires.

GLWS!

Quote:
Today I fired it up, after it ran 5-10 minutes, after it seems to have got up to operating temperature, the oil pressure gauge dropped to about 0 and the check gauges light came on. When I increased the RPM's by revving, the gauge would moved up to about 20-30. After it went to an idle, it would drop to 0. Could this just mean the oil level is low? I haven't even checked the oil level because it's too cold out lol.

Hooked up a gauge and it read almost 0 at an idle. I notice some exhaust valve noise. Also noticed the front of the engine has a small oil leak. The rear is pissing oil from around the rear main area. Oil is under the entire bottom of the truck all the way back to the tail pipes.Time to find another motor for it.

Holy f*ck you grown men act like children. I got tons of offers and told each and every one about the oil pressure. I didn't put it in my ad because I forgot. The exhaust valve noise turned out to just be a spark plug arcing. After I put lucas in it and some thicker oil earlier today the oil pressure read 11psi on my gauge. I ended up selling the truck today anyways.
