Hey everyone. Well, I think my 94 bonneville SE is dead.
My dad was driving it with me in the passenger seat....it has had an oil leak for a little while now, but thought it was nothing serious. On the way home it started knocking, not too terribly. The oil pressure guage started to bottom out into the red, the car gave an audible alarm.....my dad accelerated a little bit to get up a hill and then we lost all oil pressure, the car shut off, and we were stranded...
Towed it home, got on the forum, and did some research. It has been about a month since the accident. Apparently, I think my problem is the UIM/LIM, and am not sure if it could be as serious as a cracked head/thrown rod/seized motor....I plan on draining all the oil and then opening up the engine.
I consider myself good with tools and am a good problem solver, as well as a good critical thinker, but I have never disassembled an engine....but I am more than willing to give it a go.
Here are some pics to help....

Looking over engine
Dip stick, is the oil like milk to you? I don't think it is, IMO.
Front of engine
We have 3 Bonnevilles, all are SE from 94-95. I looked today, all are leaking oil in the same spots....this sucks.
Any help is appreciated guys.
