View Full Version : GA nightmare - PLEASE HELP!

I treat my GAGT like one of my children. Many say my GA is my 4th child and my Rott is my 5th. I was scared as ___ as what I've jus witnessed minutes ago.
Let the wife borrow the GT and she calls me telling me that my Oil Change light pops up, my battery light comes on and the car suddenly begins to run hot. I go to the driveway and see heat coming from my hood. I had the intake gasket changed at 20k, miles ago and started to rule it out but think about it, just had the oil changed last week, and the car ran hot so fast. Can it be that the oil and coolant are mixing? If anyone has experienced this, please reply with what happened so I can get an Idea what to do with it.

sounds like a LIM leak...tho when mine happend my battery light didnt come on

check your oil to see if ther is coolant in it

One the car cools down a bit drop the oil.... If the oil is spotty that is a sign of mixing with coolant...

Well since you just got you're oil changed, maybe they didn't screw the plug in right and most of your oil has slowly drained out. What are your coolant and oil levels?
