PONTIAC PARISIENNE COMPRESSION PROBLEM

1986 Pontiac Parisienne

Engine will turn over and konk out. Will not stay on. Noticed crankcase oil dip stick way above the add mark

If there is more oil in it now than when it was changed there may be coolant getting in the oil. This means you have a bad head gasket which would give you low compression and explain the stalling.
