Back head gasket

Low PSI, yes that is the oil pump drive. Take care of it ASAP. I have gone through this my self. I thought it was the leaking oil pressure sender, I replaced it and still had low pressure.

Piston slap, are you sure that you didn't spin a rod bearing? I wish I could say that there is a place online to get a short block, but all that I know of is Crate engine depot. They sell what they call a 96 3.1 (sure they mean 3100). The trouble is that it is 2G's for that. I'll try to look around ...

transmission

Sound's like I was way off. Well at least you got it taken care of.  I wish I could have been more help. My car has over 200K on it so I didn't think it was going to be that big of a deal. The switches were the only trouble I've had, with my trans that is.

Back head gasket

If you didn't change the oil pump drive on the rebuild now would be a good time. It may save money and heartbreak down the road.

I still don't think it has anything to do with the valvetrain, but I'm not driving the car. I'd go with what Rex had to say about it. My 3.1 had to have the intake gaskets changed for something different than what has happend to you. Keep us updated.

Back head gasket

Did you say where the distributor would be? The oil pump drive is in there. Stop leak isn't a good idea. If you are not going to take the engine apart Slick 50 may at least slow the leak, it should be put in on a oil change. But if you are going to put any new parts inside the engine don't put the S...

Anything new? Lifters most of the time don't care if they are run low on oil. I'd spend the money on other things. If you change the lifters it is best to also get push rods and rockers(they have all worn into each other and may not work right with one new part). The valve tips and cam are something...

REX! Where have you been? I had hope that someone who knew would show up. I feel bad that I'm not much help. I didn't see your post till after I had posted.

The Chilton's manual has a troubleshooting guide for oil on page 3-26 and 3-27. If you don't have one or can't get one tell me and I will list what may be of use. Keep me updated.

I just don't know. This is strange. No smoke? As for the pump, my oil pump drive had to be replaced once, but I still had oil in the pan. All the warning I had was my pressure was low even after I had changed the leaking presure sender. Does your temp get high quickly?

Wow! All I can do is guess, coils going out and front and rear main seals gone. Lifters make a diesel noise when they do not get enough oil. Have you looked under the engine to see where it is coming out? If it is the main seals and there is one per side it will cost alot. I knew a girl that paid 1G...

If the tape doesn't stay on there is liquid tape that brushes on. Got mine at Eastwood, but did see some at Wal-mart.
