Greetings all. New member here.
So yesterday my fiance called me and was along the side of the road in her 08 G8 GT. Car threw the check engine light on. Also in the dash screen said service engine oil, overheating, and went in to a safety mode. It happened pretty quickly as she only got about 2 miles down the road before it happened. Upon my arrival we popped the hood and I noticed that the radiator, right where the upper hose clamps on, had broke and the pressure blew the radiator hose off.
We had it towed to our house and I bought a new radiator last night for it. So this morning I swapped the radiator out, and when I removed the air intake assembly from the intake manifold I noticed oil. Opened the flap and oil was covering everything inside that I can see.
So my question is, has anyone else experienced this or does anyone know what the cause could be of the oil coming up in to the intake?
I am hoping it might just be a fluke from the radiator breaking and blowing the hose off. I checked the oil, and it looks fine on the dipstick and smells like normal oil. I do plan to change the oil though asap.
I'm not sure if there is a pcv valve on these cars or not for me to check and/or replace.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
