Back at it.
Looks like it blew a head gasket. Motor kept loosing coolant, but wasn't burning it, leaking it externally, and the oil didn't look like chocolate milk. Oil pressures were all over they place at idle, and even up to 1500+rpm. Kept overheating like crazy, even after starting it and driving it for less than 2 minutes.
I have another motor, 73k PI motor out of a 03 CVPI. Unfortunately, it has the iron block, but at this time, I can get it back on the road and put some miles down.
And get ready for the GGP again.
