coolant forced out through plastic coolant reservoir. low coolant light comes on. finally oil had light brown muddy look, sort of like a latte. we had just bought this car froim a man named doug in marin county, california who cleaned it up and sold it to us as a good running vehicle. what a crook, its only been driven 200 miles since we bought it.
