Won't start

I hate to have you check another post. But it might help both of us. Check Fighting the Quad. I'm thinking it is your PCM. If you need help getting to the computer I can tell you how to get to it so you can put the new chip in.

On the wires get a multimeter (got mine at Radio Shack). Test the ohms on the longest wire of each set, the lowest is the best. I run Rapidfires and can say they are good, I won't say great. I ran Splitfires in my 83z28 and after one month it ran bad, but it had HEI. If you try the AC Delco 41-101 t...

I thought HateMyAuto had a short block, I had to go back and check his post. But he just has a bare 3100 block, also he is down south.

Saw the video the sound on it wasn't real clear. But it did sound like a rod knock. My 83Z28 had a rod knock and I drove it for 3 months just to save more money for the new engine. Just like loosenut said. I know it sucks but it is the only thing that you can do to save your car (new engine that is)...

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.

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.
