Couple simple questions

How do you reset the check oil light after changing the oil, it's been to long since I've had a chevy. Also my 04 with 200k is blowing greyish white smoke while idleing and driving, it runs fine though maybe a little rough at idle. When I bought it they said the injectors were replaced a couple years ago at a dealership. I've already changed the fuel filter air filter an oil, anybody got any ideas what it might be, thanks for any help.

not sure on the oil light reset.. i think its something like turn on the key and press the fuel pedal 3 times real quick...

As for the grey smoke on start up I would suggest you get your injector balance rates checked... smoke at idle usually indicates a bad injector or two

I agree on leaning toward injectors. In 2008 Bosch came out with the updated version of them, and since then we've had great luck with them.
If you look at balance rates, and pulse width you should be able to see if any are out of shape. I'd recomend changing at least 1 side at a time(it's pretty common to see injector issues in 01-04 trucks)
