1986 caddy sedan deville fleetwood with just under 100K miles ... not sure if it's gas or oxygen sensor, or something else entirely ... but I noticed the average gas mileage indicator is down from 14.5...

try cleaning the MAF sensor located on the air intake, be sure to use only MAF sensor cleaner it can be purchased at just about any autoparts store. do not let some idiot talk you into using carb cleaner on it. the filaments that detect the air flow and very fragile so do not touch just spray the cleaner on them no need to wipe it off or anything. the MAF sensor can cause similar problems to what you have described. it also measures barometric pressure and detects moisture in the air so if these problems are happening when it is very humid or raining it is definitely a possibility that this is your problem.

If you pull out the dipstick you will find this is also white, which is water in your oil. More than likely cyllinder head gasket.You will probably find it in your water bottle as well
