Engine Cooling problem
1992 BMW 325 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 167000 miles
water pump housing was damaged and car los all the water and overheated, as it overheated it dropped all the engine oil onto the freeway.
car was stopped a couple of minutes later.
checked the oil and all the oil was gone, a mechanic put some oil in the engine and water and was able to take it to the shop, had to stop a few times to cool off engine and add more water.
the water pump housing was replaced,
my question is why did it lose all the oil?
is the engine going to be okay? Or will it start burning more oil? What gets damaged if the oil is lost and engine overheats?
