The checj engine light on my 99 pontiac sunfire came on last week and stayed on when i drove only a few short distances. it sat for 4 days and was on again when i drove under 8 miles then finally turned...

first of all, was the water on the passenger side from the air conditioner or a leak (what color was the fluid?)-the cap has to be tight, otherwise it will not hold pressure, so that has to be checked before you set off again-push down as you turn the cap clockwise, and it will not hurt to have water in the system (it actually transfers heat better than antifreeze) but it has a much lower boiling point, so the cap has to be tight. Pay attention to the temperature gauge and do NOT overheat it-it is an aluminum engine and they do not tolerate excessive heat. Take your time, no AC (although the AC being on can keep a good cooling system more stable since the radiator fan is forced on when the AC is running, so you can, within reason, experiment)-no matter what, just don't let it run hot-not worth it.

the fans are behind the radiator in the front of the fan runs when the a/c is switched on.the other is the cooling will overheat if the thermal switch in the radiator does not close at 195 degrees and turn on the fan relay that drives the fan. the other thing is that the head gasket could be blown,but usually a sign of that is excess vapor in the exhaust as the engine is using coolant.Getting a compression test done will usually result in bad readings.The head gasket job is expensive.the fan switch is a 30 dollar part and an hours labor.the head gasket is 1000 bucks

What is the check gauges light

CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

Your Buick is a 3.8 liter, and probably the best engine ever built. But as all good things it has a few flaws.
It is a aluminum block, that doesn't do well at all with heat, yet at -03 f. I would be more concerned with it freezing. Again a problem with anything aluminum.
The problem I have found is that the heads will crack and the dieseling you describe is common of a 3.8 with a cracked head. I would pull the spark plugs, if it is dieseling it has to have water on one of the cylinders. Pulling the spark plugs will tell wich one. and also check for faulty or blown freeze plugs in the block. They may just be pushed out a little.
