Question about 1995 Buick Skylark
As your engine warms up the engine oil gets thinner. when your engine is cold your oil is thicker and able to make higher pressure. As your engine warms up the oil gets thinner and pressure drops. This is caused by wear and excess clearances in the engine oil pump and bearings. You can prolong the use of your current engine with a thicker engine oil, but eventually you will be looking at a rebuild or replacement.
