    Somebody with a 383 stroker powered stuck on 40's should at least know about the simplest things and general upkeep. :rolleyes:

    So what if he doesn't?? We all have to start somewhere. He bought a pretty decent truck as a starting point. You fault him for that?


    However, complete, legible, understandable questions would help his cause.

    Sounds like the truck overheated IMO.

    Sounds like it overheated to me as well. If it didn't have the strong smell of tranny fluid burning and was coming from the front of the truck I'd bet it was the coolant. It most likely overheated and poured out of the overflow tank or the radiator is leaking (our 93 burb used to go through radiators like tissues). I'd check the fluid level before driving again, top it off and see what happens. If you haven't already, replacing the thermostat might have been something overlooked in the past...
