I've been eyeing this one up lately too... doesn't seem like too bad of a deal if the motor isn't full of coolant.

this was posted today, it says that the coolant is leaking into the exhaust so it my in fact be the head gasket, and it says the a coupler in the sc is rattiling. so the engine may still be good since the coolant isnt going into the oil. i should really look more into this

There is no direct path for the coolant to get into the exhaust except through the LIM gaskets, intake valve, and combustion chamber. The coolant is coming OUT the exhaust just as we suspected. Because of the LIM gaskets.
