hey all... posted on here forever ago about an alternator problem. you guys were awesome so i have another one.

same GA...like 99 i think 4 dr with a V6 its an SE

now on to the vague details i have.

person is driving the car on 77 @ 73mph...all of a sudden "water container" light comes on on the cluster. next RPMS drop and car dies.... car wouldnt restart on first try and has not been tried since.

any thoughts??? possibilities as to what in the hell this "water container" she is talking about?

please tell me its not the oil light? do you guys have an oil light? does someone have a pictar of the gauge cluster of a 98 or an instruction manual with them in it.

There is a LOW OIL light but that only checks the oil level during 'cold starts'; & CHANGE OIL light for the oil life monitor system.

I'm guessing symbolicaly it's the oil can with a drop = Oil Pressure Light.
Meaning low/no oil pressure.




...do you guys have a timing chain or belt???...
