yea my truck has its good and bad days when it runs good and when it doesnt but yea its never had synthetic fluid in it all its life, right after i put synthetic in it, it quit puffin the smoke after i started it. its deffinately a tired engine, wish i could do a rebuild but im still in high school n dont have alot of money.

but my brother has a 98 with a 360 that just uses oil like crazy and smokes at WOT but it only has maybe 135,000 miles on it, u think thats what the dealio is? because i cant imagine bad rings at 135,000 miles lol
