hey guys,

bad news, im driving home tonight and i notice my coolant light come on just as i was parking infront of my house. Not thinking much of it, i put in a bottle of water and i had to run to the bank, i notice a big water spot and the coolant light came back on when i got home. I hope it isnt anything serious, but i do need some input.

My Car:
E30 with an M50 engine swap (2.5L from a '94) engine has approx 90k on it

- I havent noticed if the car is overheating, runs fine but the coolant light comes on

- there is a water spot/puddle when i stop, hoses seem to be fine

- and i dont know if its related, but i do hear a highpitched whine when i start the car and drive about

im thinking possibly the waterpump, any other input?

( i posted this thread in the e30 section, im confused where to put it because my car is a mongrel mix of e30 and e36 lol )
