Can't control oil pressure?
Hi, my name is Justin, I recently got a 3.8L 1999 Firebird and there is a rod knocking so I'm pretty sure I need a new engine. As far as the oil pressure goes, I'll start the car and let it set there. After about 7 minutes the oil pressure starts dropping and by about 10 minutes it redlines and I kill it. It's not the sending unit or the gauges as far as I know of... Also when I rev it, it starts smoking near the drivers side. My dad thinks that is electrical.
