Yes it is, but just having the key near the ignition is enough to start the car. If you can turn the ignition with the broken key, hold the broken part in your hand and see if it will start. Hopefully the chip isn't damaged. I know that when GM keys are replaced, they glue the old key under the dash to make it work. Hope this helps.

Low oil pressure readout and engine runs rough it is a 740 IL 1995 I dont know what models below are 740 IL


Hi it could just be the oil pressure switch get that checked first.

Is the car putting out any smoke? if so then it may be the head gasket starting to go, leaking oil into the pots. give it a hard rev and check, also the valve stem oil seals could be going. this would cause the engine to run rough if the spark plugs are getting oil on them. remove each plug and check for deposits of oil or very dark carbon

there is a few possibilities but your better checking these first.
if no joy get back to me
