Anyone know what the cause is...symptoms: just started squealing when hitting the gas, and batt generator and coolant lights just came on....smells a little like its hot, but temp gauge normal...just happened Sat after dealer and shops close so I'm stuck til Monday...any input from anyone on what may have happened? oh yeah, for a second when batt light came on the power steering locked up for a split second! thanks...

PS: got the car home just after this all started and there is coolant all over the garage floor...so now i know something is up! btw, can coolant stain concrete?

Got it! Anyone know whats a fair price to change a water pump? I assume thats what failed and caused the coolant to drain? :)

its a 2006 cayman with 64k....thanks for any feedback! btw, what is WAG?
With the data at hand AMDeutsch nailed it with what I would call a "SWAG" or "Scientific Wild A** Guess". As a former scientist the two became my most popular acronyms when asked for an opinion. :hilarious: More data always helps for sure.

:cheers:
