Answer . It should be on the lower left side back of the engine, next to the oil pan. You'll have to crawl under to see it. If it is a 2wd you may want to put it on a lift or jack it up. It can be a pain to reach.
5 quarts if you have a 305 or 350 engine. 6 quarts if you have a newer style 4.8 liter, 5.3 liter, or 6.0 liter v8 engine.
Check the top of the valve cover. The PVC valve is located on the right valve cover(on the right if in front of vehicle). The pcv valve will have a vacuum hose attached to it, behind the 4th spark plug on the drivers side.
Answer . LOOK UNDER AND YOU WILL SEE THE BIG FILTER RIGHT UNDER BEFORE YOUR TIRE.

Use SAE 5W-30 engine oil in your Chevy Silverado if possible. If 5W-30 isn't available, you may use 10W-30 if temperatures are not expected to fall below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. .
Depending on where the leak is, if there is a weakness in the 350 it was with the oil cooler lines. It turns out that most of the oil leaks from the cooler lines has nothing to do with seals. It's a problem with the cooler line.

Need to check the intake manifold, It is a common problem on the voretec engines.
Standing in the front of the engine, It will be on the top back right side of the engine block. Just behind the intake manifold.
\nMore than likely 5 quarts with filter change. Drain oil, change filter, and Add 5 quarts, start the engine, run for 1 minute, shut down and wait 30 minutes with vehicle sitting on a level surface. Check level and add if necessary. You now know the capacity.
It is on the very back right top side of the intake corner. You will need to climb up and lean over the engine to see it. It screews into the top of the engine block on the right.
Slide under the truck behind the driver's side wheel and look up at the side of the engine, you will see it.
It is screewed into the engine block, behind the distributor. I mean right dead behind it.
It is in the bottom of the oil pan, And the oil pan is bolted to the very bottom of the engine.
Where is the oil pressure sending unit located on a 2004 4.8 L V8 GMC?
The owners manual recommends 5W30. I would stick with that. I have been using Mobile 1 Full Synthetic 5W30 since I purchased the car and it runs great!
There is two of them,and they are under the Intake manifold. You will have to remove the intake to even see them and to remove them. Bad place for GM. to put them.
my 1995 stock 5.7L pulled an 8000 pound trailer and didnt have any problems besides stopping lol!
It is behind the timing cover on the front of the engine. You will have to remove the timing cover to get to it.
There are 2 of them on that engine, Both of them are underneith the INTAKE MANIFOLD You will have to remove the intake to service them and to even be able to see them.
0 degrees TDC. However, there are several steps to set the timing. Refer to a repair manual specific to that vehicle for the exact procedure.
I usually go w/straight 30 which promotes sealing on older engines unless you are in a very cold clime & need a multi.
About 550 pounds. This would assume aluminum heads and intake, and a powerglide. And it would be closer to 575 with fluids.
5W30 in the winter and 10W40 In the summer. CAN"T be any heaver are it will burn the valvetrain up.
I have a 2004 v8 Silverado 1500 LS , with 5.3 ltr engine, the gvwis about 13000lbs, and truck weighs just under 5000lbs, so withthat being said you should be able to tow about 8000lbs max. Iusually tow a 25 foot boat which weighs about 7600lbs with trailer,fuel and equip. The truck pulls it without …difficulty, but you canfeel the pull going uphill. ( Full Answer )

No, the 4.8 Liter Chevy V8 is actually 4,807 cc and is 293.3 Cubic Inches.
Advertised engine oil pressure is: 1000 RPMs----6 LBS or more 2000 RPMs-----18 LBS. are higher
Factory says, Cold weather 5W30 weight only. Hot months 10W30 weight. Do not use any heavier weight are it will destroy the valve train.
5W30 weight only. If you run any heavier oil in that engine it will burn the valve train up.
Turn key on,DO NOT START then push the gas pedal all the way down to the floor 3-times. Then turn key off and then start the engine. Light should flash and then go out.
Usually 5w30. 10w30 can also be used in most climates. Consult owner's manual for more specific info.
That would be the first spark plug up front in the drivers side head. cylinder #s are drivers side head front to rear is 1-3-5-7 The other head front to rear is 2-4-6-8
You did not say what year it was but I hope this covers it. 1988-2012 should have 10W30 in the HOT months and 5W30 in the cold months. Any heavier oil will burn the roller valve train up in time. Anything under 1988 you can run whatever you want in it.
SAE 10w30 any major brand. Use High Mileage oil if it has over 100,000 miles on the odometer.
The Oil Pressure Switch is located on the driver's side top rear of the engine on your Chevy Pickup.
