A deteriorating plenum was causing coolant to get into engine cylinders. Dealer notified, and repairs made at consumer's cost. The heat from the egr valve burns a hole inside the wall of planam allowing the engine to suck coolant into cylinders and causing the engine to lose power steering and brakes resulting in accident.
