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!

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.
