Roger that. Have four lined up already. Thanks everyone for the help, too bad it led to a new motor instead of a simple fix....
Thanks again.

How would coolant even sit in the valve cover. I'd think its run down the large oil returns unless the whole engine was filled with coolant

Didn't you have problems that started right after some work? What was it you and Marty replaced? What were your symptoms afterwards?

When me and Marty went at it, all that came off was the */c, that'* it. And the problem was the I forgot to scrape off some of the old TB gasket, and put the new one on over it, so you would start it and coolant would shoot into the intake.. But there was no way that was the case, that was well over 6 months ago. The oil was changed immediately afterwards, and was changed twice after that before it quit on me.
The CEL did come on, but that was because one of the MAP sensors wasn't plugged in, no symptoms, ran fine up until it quit.

my car is having some of the same symptoms. It would run fine at first, but then as the car really warmed up, you would notice a loss of power, especially at highway speeds. Now, the sob wont start! Well wish ya the best of luck with yours buddy! hopefully she'll be back up and running soon

If you haven't.. please start a thread with your exact symptoms and we'll get both of these up and running soon.

Not quite the same. Mine had no symptoms of any problems until it died. Power was always there, never missed, never had any obvious coolant in the oil, yours is probably something different. Or else your LIM gaskets are leaking really badly, but it would be more noticeable if I'm not mistaken.

Update:
Alright, well, the motor was pretty seized. (mechanic had trouble getting the torque converter off because he couldn't rotate the crank more than a tiny bit)
New motor'* in, getting the car back tomorro, and I'm wondering if there'* anything I have to do being it'* a newer motor? Or do I just have to take it slow and everything will be fine?

Take it easy for a while and let it settle in and get running again. I like to do an oil change after a couple hundred miles. That way if anything was in there or any other fluids got in..they are flushed out.
