Mein Auto: bmw 316es compact e46
Exclamation flashing oil light and lumpy revs

Hi Guys. Please help a damsel in distress!!
I recently used steal seal and white shepherd leak seal on my bmw 316es compact as was advised by a friend. The symptoms were lumpy revs occasionally, misfire in cylinder 3, wet in cylinder 3, white smoke on start up that disappeared after 10 mins. i used the steel seal and leak seal and it was great for a whole day. This morning i started it and no power, i put my foot down and it stalled. If i turned the engine off then on but with my foot full on, it revs high and falls to 700 then fluctuated between 700 - 1200rpm. I can also hear a intermittent gurgling noise inside the cab from behind the dash which goes when i turn the heating off. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
