Pontiac Bonneville 1996 154,000 original miles, 500 on rebuilt engine.
I recently had my engine and manifold intake replaced. I also had the oil level indicator replaced. About a week or so ago, I noticed that the oil pressure was low. Then when I turned a corner the needle went all the way down to zero. It also acts as if it going to shut off when I start it unless I promptly hit the gas pedal. There is also a cloud of white smoke at startup. I took the car back to the mechanic who installed everything and was told that the oil was fine and didn't find anything wrong. Also said that dash reading was wrong. I don't know if there is a problem with the oil or engine and if something is wrong I want the person I paid $1000 to fix the problem. Could you give an idea of what the problem may be.
