I own a 1996 Olds 88 it has approx 125,000 miles. Yesterday I was out running errands, when I noticed my check engine light starting to flash. I drove about 2/10 ths of a mile before the light stayed on constantly. I immediately pulled into a parking lot, as I did I noticed my engine lost power before kicking back in again.
I parked the car and got out to check under the hood when I noticed a very strong " Sulfur" type smell. I tried to restart the car, it wanted to turn over but didnt when it let lose a huge white cloud of smoke from the exhaust. I noticed this same white smoke coming for the oil dipstick area.
Any idea on what happened to my engine? And why it all happened so quickly?
