Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada
My 99 bravada has low oil pressure runs rough and engine light is on. has oil no smoke no leakes at idle is 10 psi oil when rev has 22 psi oil then drops to 0 any help thanks larry
Check for coolant in the oil. remove the oil fill cap and look for a white milky substance. most likely engine damage has already occured because to have that low if oil pressure there is too much "clearance" between the bearings and the components they work with-(crankshaft,camshaft,connectiong rods). that vehicle came with dexacool coolant and it would shorten the life of the intake gaskets. they then would leak into the engine ruining the bearings over time. the skip can happen from lifters hydrolocked with the oil/coolant solution. take it to a reputable mechanic for an analysis......Good luck.......Scott

It may be something with the oil or even the petrol
