I left work today and noticed that my Cruze, (2012 1.4L), ran rough below 1500 rpm. The steering wheel was vibrating. Above that the motor smoothed out, but it did not accelerate properly. Then as I left red lights I heard a very brief "chirping" sound.
10 minutes later I noticed that the temp gauge was in the red, and I stopped immediately. I saw no fluid in the coolant tank, and I called a tow truck.
**My car has 145,000kms, and it has had two transmission-fluid changes, a coolant change, (-recently), and has oil/filter changes every 5000kms.
Any idea what happened? My mechanic isn't back to work until Monday....
Thanks for any help.
