No worries about ulcers here, I give those to OTHER people...

Besides, if that bottle of rust-remover I swallowed when I was 4 didn't get me, this sure ain't

Isn't this about average mileage for a 10 year old car? I don't see why you even needed high mileage vehicle coverage, for a '95 this doesn't sound high at all.

I think the Riv would be a great replacement, looked at one myself before I bought the bonneville, loved the Riv, but wife said it had to have 4 doors, so went with the bonneville (no regrets).

Do you think there'* a chance the oil pressure problem you had when you bought the car was not the sending unit after all, maybe the real, more serious, internal engine problem was already there?

Very well could be...
However when they replaced the sending unit, it seemed to solve the problem, oil-pressure went up to 60psi, right where it'* supposed to be, so I think that the internal problem is new.

BTW heard from Hughes this morning, and Trunk'* goona try to F*ck me. They wouldn't pay for the second opinion they asked for, so they aren't gonna get one.
Now they have two choices; they can pay for the repairs that Dennis Pontiac recommended(new motor), or they can take the car back, refund my money and compensate me for the money I have put into the car($250 for brake upgrade, $80 for SilverStar lights, and $800 that I spent to correct the pre-existing sending unit problem)
I believe that altogether I have spent about $1500 on this car beyond the $4990 purchase price, so that makes it ~$6500 he owes me. That oughtta put me in a Series 2 Bonnie or a Riviera. I hope(for his sake) that he sees the light and pays for the motor.
If not, well, my Dad'* been a bureaucrat for 27 years and we'll f*ck up Trunk'* life something awful. Never, EVER, F*ck with a Dalton.
