Okay, So I was out of town 2 weeks ago. I let my mother use the car while I was gone. well I get a call a few hours into my trip. the w8 is broken down on the side of the highway. she get's it towed to my house. I get home a few days later. I pull the codes I find both knock sensor codes, a few coolant temp codes, misfire 3,6 cyl plus a multi misfire, and the wonderful p0318 rough road sensor. Anyway's it had no coolant in it. so I filled it up just to watch it pour all over the ground. My thought was great the alternator went kapoop. $900+ later for the part I pulled the front clip off and replaced it. to find out after getting it back together it's still leaking coolant and was not the alternator at all. but the expansion/freeze plug on the pass side head took a trip. which is odd... it should not have come out. unless it built up soooo much pressure and blew it out of the head, never seen that before. so tomorrow the front end is coming back off. I will do a diy for the alternator also the freeze out plug. grrrrrrr
