LOW OIL PRESSURE. Serious engine damage will occur if you keep driving this car in this condition. First thing to do is check oil level. If it is OK, then I would change the oil and install a GM, AC/Delco filter. If that does not correct the situation, check the oil pressure sending unit and see if the wires are connected correctly and are not loose. You could replace the oil sending unit or just take it to a professional. You may have an oil pump problem. An oil pressure test will verify this.

Why did Oldsmobile stop making cars?

Oldsmobile was not the problem, it was GM that made oldmobiles but they stopped making them in 2004 and the reason is that Oldsmobiles did not bring in enough money for GM or (General Motors) to be happy so they stopped. but if you ask me i think any car that lasted 106 year is good enough and is a good car to keep selling.

What are the disadvantages of using a pressure cooker?

Depending on usage and care, the gasket will need replacing every now and then, and occasionally some new manufacturers will come and go, leaving the consumer with no options. The old style hissing models of the past are gone; today's new, modern pressure cookers are very quiet, totally safe and reliable The modern pressure cooker has many new features that were not available on the older model, and now the cooking cycle can be safely interrupted to add additional ingredients, or stopped at anytime.
