    i just changed my oil on my K5 and now the passenger side smokes. I dont know why, its smells of burining oild and gets worse when i dle. (not like Uncle Buck or anything) Also smoke comes out of the block between the block and headers.. i think i need new gaskets..but why is it smokeing?

    Sounds like some of the oil got spilled when it was put in...

    Could also be the PCV is not hooked up correctly...

    Just guessing here.
