top gasket might be blown, check dip stick for water and oil cap, if white its blown, try removing the radiator or water cap swing the engine and if water goes out its blown, hope it helps

No water n oil or vice versa, I shut it down before it red lined. There is 2 hot wires 1 to starter 1 that breaks down and goes to other. That one had a short.
