Default 1995 SE--burning oil, low oil pressure gauge.

So, okay.

Here'* the problem. I live in MA on the side of a mountain. Snow, ice, and steep hills are not good for my '95 Bonneville (with 180,000miles). Needless to say, I was struggling a bit to climb the mountain last night, but made it with a little rocking.

This evening, I started my car to chip off some ice. I smell burning oil, my antifreeze overflow valve is low, and a hear a front end knock. It will occasionally stall. Everytime I rev (about 2000-3000rpm) the oil pressure gauge drops.

Can anyone help me diagnose this problem and remedy it?

Thank you, fellow club members!

-Kevin

your UIM or the LIM gaskets probably jsut failed and you probably just destroyed the motor when you said there was a knock.

Either way, i recommend changing oil ASAP to protect the motor from further damage.

i'll get you a techinfo link (TECHINFO at top ^^^) on the UIM failure.
