Car experienced massive coolant loss. Noticed coolant covering engine and underside of hood. Saw Dex-cool running down the back of the fan/radiator. Dealer pressure tested cooling system and replaced water pump under warranty. Seems OK after repair.
Vehicle DIC (Driver Info Center) displayed "Engine Hot / A/C Off" and temp gauge dropped to zero. With no temp gauge, it was decided it was best to have it towed.
Dealer replaced: Temp sensor
Returned 2 week later for reflash of computer.
Problem with Dexcool gelling, went in for flush noticed that water pump had evidence of leaking. R&R water pump and thermostat while having complete system flush to get rid of gelled dexcool. Check engine light, code leaky fuel vapor system. Diagnosed as possibly due to aftermarket locking gas cap.
