Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Chevy S-10 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 135, 00 miles

driving on freeway, heard some pinging noises, and had a sudden loss of power, pulled over and found the radiator to have no fluid, the gages did not indicate a problem. I put fluid in the radiator, it was leaking at as fast as you could put it in. The truck will crank, but will not start. What do you think? Problem big or little?

The engine will detonate/ping if its overheating-find where the leak is then report back.

A leak there and no compression could mean a blown headgasket.
