Hello all and Happy New Year,
I am writing here today because I am desperate. What should have been a simple coolant change end up being a disaster. Let me start from the beginning.
After Christmas I decided to play with the car (2013 V6) and change the coolant. I did watch few videos read a little about it as well- easy right?. I drained the old coolant and refiled with distilled water. Drained it again. I noticed that only about 2 gallons of water came out. I read somewhere that you can start the car and rest of the fluid will drain. I did that. After about 20 seconds the car started dying. I quickly turned it off. Added more distilled water to do another flush, tried to start the car but it doesn’t start anymore.
When I turn the ignition on the car cranks and it cranks even I when I move the key back (stops when I move the key to the off position) see the video: https://sendvid.com/3h2my86q
I have been losing sleep over that for over 4 days now. I tried disconnecting the battery to clear EPC. I drained the water and purchased the pressurized cooling system refiller, the system holds pressure and I refilled it with new coolant, I have noticed that it only took about 1.5 gallon of new coolant ?
I checked the fuses, I put the car on the stock tune, I have not seen any codes etc.
I am totally lost I have no idea what happened. Please help.
