I have a 96 SSE with about 127k. What are the early signs of UIM/LIM failure, if any?
I have a terrible burnt oil smell coming from the car and the coolant tank has been dry twice in six monts. I'm only a novice mechanic, not good at digging into engines.
The oil pressure is fine after having the entire system (incl. the screen) cleaned last year. It doesn't go even close to red. It used to top out at 120psi, but the cleaning solved that problem. I have noticed the coolant reservior empty twice in about six months. This time when I topped up, I marked it exactly and look at it about every three days. Not much movement over the last 10-15 days. I did just have the tranny replaced. There is no milky look to the oil and no color to the exhaust. The oil is blackest black, even after a few days after a change. I've had the oil changed every 3k religiously.
I saw this page http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...e=article&k=38
and will look to see when the manifold was made if that helps.
Thanks ahead of time for all the advice.
