Laguna 1.9 dCI Screwed! :(

Hey guys!

2 nights ago, all of a sudden - my laguna over heated. I pulled up, left it for a few minutes, and it was fine. It then did the same thing twice more.

I then realised - it only did it if going up hills or higher / revs. Driving normal - the temperature stayed normal.

Once the engine had cooled, I checked the coolant levels - the reserve tank was empy! I pour 3 large jugs of water into it... it filled - then emptied! No puddles on the floor.. nothing!
I've checked the oil dipstick & cap for any creamy substances, it's all clean - pure clean oil .

There's no power on the car now either... if I put my foot to the floor - nothing happens.

Finally, if I let the revs get above 2100 - there's a rather loud "whirring" noise.... and sometimes on deceleration.

Any ideas / thoughts / tests I can do? Cheers Guys!
