    Hi guys, I got a Tahoe 2007 5.3 LS Flex for restoration from the auction and it's a first day.


    So far,
    I got this crazy hole in the oil pan (should be an oil pan)..

    And some strange debris that I found under the engine bay after I moved the truck.
    Car actually drives :eek: and doesn't sound crazy (4 cyl, I was afraid to turn into 8)
    so it shouldn't be crankshaft or whatever. I hope.

    Will try to remove whatever is left of the oil pan and look further.

    That doesn’t look good at all.

    agree on that part.
    nice cars btw!

    curious if someone has an idea where that metal stick is coming from. or (just maybe) it could be just something random due to the truck was sitting God knows where.

    Welcome to the forum. Looks like a wrist pin to me.
