Well I've had my 83 K5 for about 8 months now. Havent had any major problems until now. First off I not a mechanic but I do know the basics. I "think" one of my piston rings is going bad, from what I've been told it sounds like a ring. I get constant oil buildup on my #1 plug some white smoke from tailpipe at times. Another problem is I am getting a rotating squeal from my front end, when I turn the wheel it gets worse, when I brake it goes away. Friend said is was my brake pads? Next thing I notice was a sort of clunking sound. like it's coming from underneath, trans or driveline, possible u-joints? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
