5 weeks ago I had the cam belt changed and a new water pump fitted to my 2001 147 2.0.
Today the temp gauge jumped straight into the red from normal temp with no warning and the message "coolant has reached maximum temperature". I eased off the accelerator and it went straight to normal temp.
I did 1/2 mile at significantly reduced speed and the temp stayed normal. Then I got the message " Motor Control System Failure ". I pulled over and turned engine off. It wouldn't turn over at all when I tried straight away. After a few minutes it started and limped the mile to the next junction. The temp was normal. At this point the engine gave in clouds of oily steam/smoke....
There is no coolant in the reservoir. I always keep all fluids topped up etc.
My journey was a little over 20 miles.
The cam belt isn't broken...
Does this sound like the water pump failed and caused head gasket to give or head gasket went and cooked all the coolant?
It's not turning over at all and I can't see anything conclusive in the dark.
If its the water pump then I have a case for the garage that fitted it to repair everything, right?
If its just head gasket should I just get it skimmed or get a new engine & if new engine would the gta lump just drop in or do I need other things brought up to same spec?
