I would think these prices would be X2 because I thought the oil is supposed to be changed twice to assure you get all the coolant out. Maybe not, just a thought

Sorry to here about your misfortune

If your car is supercharged, the only source of coolant leaking internally would be the lower intake manifold gaskets.

And...just because you were charged for oil and filter doesn't mean it was changed.

the car is indeed supercharged. the work that was listed earlier in the forum was work done BEFORE the engine blew. the car hasent moved since, other than the mechanic removing the oil pan & gasket to see what had happened that day on the interstate.

the mechanic said that there is no antifreeze in the oil & that the engine definately exploded. he said there are pieces of rods, bearings, caps, etc everywhere.
