What's up guys. I've been having trouble with my camaro. So I changed the head gaskets not to long ago. And put it all back together myself(noob). It starts up right away sometimes and then sometimes it doesn't at all. There are 2 things I think might be of problem.
I don't know if you can see but there are tiny particles in the oil. Black specs and shiny specs. The shiny specs seem to me like sand(I took the engine apart on some windy days and I live in the desert). But I don't know about the black particles.
Second, seems to me like there might be a leak but I'm not too sure. The car will run fine for a while and then boom it just dies. Always before it dies there seems to be smoke coming from the drivers side headers and towards the back where the distributor is.
Any help will be great, thanks guys.
