Twenty Miles into trip all fluids checked the night before on cruise control at 70 MPH. Suddenly engine missing, then came back for a moment and barely made it off the freeway and died in mall parking lot. As it died the low coolant lite came on but Temp gage remained at normal. Would not restart and all instrument lites were flickering on and off strange clicking noise. There was no coolant at all in the radiator or hoses and hoses were cold to touch and no pressure. Oil on dipstick was 2 inches highter than normal but still seemed to have the feel and viscosity of 0W-40W.
Towed to garage and now waiting to hear the diagnosis. 135,000 freeway miles, Oil changes every 6,000 miles all maintenance done on time.
Two more years of payments @$440 per month.
Anybody ever bought an engine for this thing??
Advice, biting my nails !!
