My 94 Eldorado is doing the same thing. This oil is not milky and the coolant is not sticky. What do you mean by headgaskets? I had my headgaskets replaced a little over a year ago.
Thanks,
Teresa :confused:

Well you may not necessarily have milky oil or gooey coolant.... But you could still have a leak in the gasket.....

Hopefully the heads werent warped, causing the gasket to fail again!

Hey I have the same smell on my 1994 sts. Oil is still black and coolant still wet. My radiator is new I put a new one in myself month ago. It did overheat!?. Now I have a new problem the smell and the engin hesitates mechanic said i need a new electrical coil one of the three isn't firing as strong and new plugs and wires he did mention perhaps a blown gasket(perhaps?). N hell i'm just a broke college kid who bought a car way out of my leage.
