    Hi everybody
    Massive problem here...car needed water formradiator...suddenly while driving needed oil. Topped up. Parked the car for 2 hours and before driving home. On the way doing 70mph car suddenly started losing power and having smoke coming out the back. Speed was going down and in a round about suddenly engine shut down or died on me and I got the car and managed to ditch it.

    Soem say coolant leak and computer shut dowen car to avoid major damage but soem say it is engine rebuild costing millions :)

    Any of you guys have any idea or reasonable suggestions what I am faced with here? And secondly how the heck am I ever get to find out what is wrong.
