    No! That alarm is there to tell you something has gone wrong with the engine and needs to be serviced. Water pump, engine oiling :etc. Others here can tell you more but don't buy it like it is. If it is a 2007 it can be hooked up to a computer and check fault codes. Did it have water coming from the tell tale indicating water pump was operating?

      depending on WHAT ground was loose. possibly.
      highly doubt it.
      take it on another seatrial.
      if it cannot maintain at least 5500 RPM for at least 20 minutes take a pass.
      no tech questions by PM, they wont get answered.
      you have to be trusted by the people that you lie to .
