Re: i heard a pop (teamgti)

Burst coolant hose; side effect of winter. Fill you're coolant resevoire then, while you watch under the hood, have someone turn on the car. You should see a hose spraying liquid everywhere.
Turn off the car as soon as you spot the hose. Then replace the hose.
EVERY single hose in my '86 Golf burst two winters ago. It sucked. I learned to carry duct-tape and antifreeze with me everywhere I went.
