No never ran hot running normal just my check engine light came on

On thanksgiving I cranked it and accidently turned off without letting it heat up worried that's why engine light came on I have a rotary engine 6speed


Unsure, wish I could be more help.......


The milky substanse like mayonese is oil mixed with water from the coolant system. Not good sign... From some where is leaking coolant liquid to the engine... Look also for the same milky stuff at the coolant cap...
