When my intake ruptured I actually had Synthetic oil in my car.... Right after I change the oil with cheapie stuff to clen all the old oil out of the crankcase... I changed it again in a couple hundred miles and then back to the synthetic... I think keeping it all clean being that I knew I had a problem and the oil was like water thin... I think being the anal person I usually am about oil saved my motor...

Wonder if the current owner ever really changed the oil or knew that 95'* do use a bit of oil... Usually less than 1qt per 3000 miles...

ya but from a buying standpoint when looking at the car, its more viable to just start the car and take a listen....
True dat. If ya get serious about buying something with a clunk in the engine, however, it might be worth a look - it'* so easy on a Bonneville.

Hans:
There'* another Green Bonneville (95 I think) for $375 somewhere in Utah. Dude claims the transmission takes a while to go into gear, but once it does it has no problems. Maybe between the two cars you can put together a decent one. Could be a more work than it'* worth too. Check ksl.com classifieds (go to the autos section) and look for bonnevilles within 300 miles of 84015.
