Missing coolant found...in oil pan
Had to lay up the GTV6 about two years ago due to other life issues. Before doing so, put in fresh antifreeze. changed the oil etc. Things have leveled out a bit and thought it might be a good day to start the old girl. Went through things in preparation to firing it up and noticed the oil on the dipstick seemed way too high. ? Checked the coolant overflow tank and it was empty. ? Pulled off the upper radiator hose and some coolant came out but not as much as would be expected. Dun dun dun...cold chill. Drained the oil and sure enough antifreeze was coming out along with the oil.
Prior to the lay up, the car ran great. Ran strong, no evidence of coolant loss or oil contamination. At a loss on how to explain how so much coolant could drain out on a stationary engine that seemed to be in good shape.
Where should I start looking first? I've since lost my garage space and the storage shed is a really tight fit for any kind of serious work.
