Hello
\012Something that you may want to check, or have checked is the, ( MAF ), " mass air flow ", sensor.
Some of the symptoms are, bad idle, loss of engine's power, stalling, and eventually preventing the
engine from starting, especially in cold weather.
\012
\012This is usually easy to check;
\012
The sensor is usually located in the air intake duct system, the duct system that the air filter is in )
between the air filter and the engine. Most have a plug with 4 or 5 wires. Very carefully discon-
nect the plug. If the engine doesn't start either remove the battery cables and clean them very
good, or try to jump start the engine. Once the engine is running leave the plug off and go for a
short test drive to see if you notice the engine performing better.
\012
\012You can drive while this is disconnected, but try not to do that too long. It can cause other
sensors to trigger the, " check engine light ", and over a longer period of time can damage the
catalytic converter.
\012
\012Some handy people go to a parts store and get, " mass air flow ", cleaner. It does seem to work
well, but you have to follow the instructions very closely.
\012
\012I hope this helps you.

It's an old question but I answer it in case you still have the truck.The oil leak is probably the rear main seal and on 86 and up small block Chevy's it's a one piece seal and you'll need to pull the engine. That''s why some garages charge so ... 1987 Chevrolet Blazer
