I own an '89 Camaro RS the V8 305 cu. engine has less than 7000 miles on it. 2 days ago my oil pressure dropped from 60 to 20 w/in minutes. It didn't overheat or run bad. That night the temp. skyrocketed along w/ the oil pressure being low caused my car to die. It wouldn't start for 20-30 minutes. My question is can the thermostat be stuck. If so, what are my chances of having a cracked head. A mechanic told me the overheating was lack of antifreeze & the oil was an oil sender sensor. After filling w/ antifreeze & being very careful it is still getting hot. Any suggestions??? It never got over 240 after it died the other night. My oil has been completely broken down.. The engine is still under warranty.. Help!!
