luvmacaddy Posted March 29, 2008 Report Share Posted March 29, 2008 Bought my wife a used '94 Deville Concours. Interior and exterior immaculate. Owned for 12 years by retired John Deere worker and wife. Sold to a younger guy that I bought it from. Have had it for about a week, put about 60 miles on it----I drove it to make factory two days, then my wife drove it to grocery shop. Last Tuesday I drove it out of town to a meeting I had, then the Coolant Warning indicator came on, and then the low oil pressure warning came on. I had oil and anti-freeze in the trunk--person I purchased it from said that it needed anti-freeze occasionally, he replaced the radiator last spring--added coolant, started it back up, traded cars with my wife---just in case--and she drove it home. No problems until she turned into the driveway when the oil pressure warning indicator scrolled across the (?) DIC? I checked the oil this evening, everything fine---oil changed about 200 miles ago. We drove to dinner---about 7 miles in mostly 55+mph zones. When we were stopped at stoplight. oil pressure warning came on with STOP ENGINE. I was about a half mile to restaurant, so we went there. I popped the hood and saw smoke rising from the right of the engine (under the power steering res) and saw a fair amount of oil splashed against the side of the engine, pulleys and belt. No choice but to drive home, which I did with no warning lights on what so ever. Still okay oil level. Blown engine, gaskets, or worse??? Thanks, this forum is really neat to see people up on Caddys!
