Water pump was the culprit. I don't like how the reservoir went to tan though. He said maybe that is what pushed back in it from the engine side. Whereas usually straight coolant is in the tank.
Local shop, not dealership. Thought it was a little high..:
This is where the oil filter housing is, right? That is dry.
Would the valve cover give me coolant issues also? I thought that would just paint the engine with oil.
This is so frustrating because I meticulously maintain my car my car.
I felt all around it. It didn't feel wet. The engine (back) by the firewall and dpf is dripping. Maybe on the side where the serpentine belt is But can't see exactly where it is coming from.
I would hope that would be the oil cooler though. Much cheaper!
I think I have a blown head gasket. The coolant reservoir went from pink to tan. And the oil leak is more prominent. Dripping out from the plastic belly cover by the front right tire Above my head, towing to a repair shop.

Does anybody know where you can buy an oilpan blanket/insulator/cover? I can find every other part for the oilpan, but the blanket. I guess it is named something else!
Mine is soaked in oil after 147000 miles.
The 202B is the heater control circuit.
The 205B is the Temperature Sensor Circuit Range/Performance.
I wonder if you would have wired a 3ohm resistor to the red/white (heater), that is that where you needed to trick the car?
So, when I was wiping the lower intercooler out initially with my fingers... it did seem like it was a dark green slime. I though that my old eyes were just playing tricks on me. But, glad you mentioned it. When I did flush it out, hard to tell now... was it dark dark green or was it black...
Great valve kit on the stopper. I bet I have those exact same spare parts in the garage! It did make a mess for sure. And I was jumping out of the way!
The second flush, I was able to crack the bottom of the stopper open from the top side of the car. It went much better.
Do you think the...
