Default Just purchased 97 Bonneville SSE

Newbie here. I just purchased a 1997 Bonneville SSE. I've few questions,

1) Does 1997 SSE has remote keyless entry or not? Mine doesn't have any.

2) There is a slight oil leak, I don't know if it from Valve cover gasket or intake gasket? Is this common with these cars? Is this a serious issue that will need immediate attention? Is there a DIY for this anywhere on the site?

3) Around 65-70 MPH there is a vibration but at 75 it smooths out. Does anyone know what this is?

All the help will be much appreciated.

It should have a keyless entry. If it'* your valve cover that'* leaking it'* a easy fix, If it'* a LIM gasket leak it'* a bit more involve but can still be done.

Have you had the tires balanced? Also, jack up the car and check the wheels for any play.
