My 02' Impreza WRX 2.0 BLOWN MOTOR!?! NEED HELP!!!
Me and my girl were driving back from Miami, Fl on I95 going about 80mph when all of a sudden smoke and the smell of coolant came into the car. It then died soon after, and we pulled it over off the highway. Looked under hood, no coolant at all, perfect oil level, it had gas. Ended up towing it home. Now it only turns over. There is NO compression...is this the cause of a blown motor or could there be something that I could fix myself?
A few weeks before this happened, the overheat gauge would be in the red when I would stop at a red light after around a 20min drive. When I would accelerate, it would go back into the green/cool zone.
