1987 944S Oil/Coolant Mixing


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944S; Year: 1987; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 72K;

I had been driving at 75 or 80 for a couple of hours, when the idiot light came on. I at first thought that the parking brake lever had moved a little, but as I was checking it the oil pressure gauge dropped to nothing and a puff of steam came from the left front of the car. I immediately shut it off and coasted to a stop. Apparently, the oil went into the coolant and out through the expansion tank. I checked the oil, and what's left doesn't seem to have any coolant in it.
