If the heater matrix is buried somewhere behind the glovebox, the noise could have been air or combustion gas being pumped through the matrix.

Cylinder head gaskets normally allow small amounts of combustion gas to escape and the cooling system is designed to allow it to rise rapidly above the coolant level, often with additional ports and vent hoses leading to the degassing tank.

If the degassing system becomes blocked due to the cooling system being dirty or corroded the gas bubbles can build up and displace coolant and disrupt the thermostat operation and eventually be forced into the heater matrix causing a vapour lock.

A failing head gasket will have a similar effect...

These things will need checking. Overheating is invariably caused by insufficient coolant circulation and/or insufficient cooling air flow through the radiator.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.


check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump
