Car wont start no antifreeze
by Visitor in Point, TX on January 11, 2011
wow. that is not good. the petcock is the bottom of the radiator.
in your case, i would remove the lower hose to allow for more movement. hope it did not crack the block.
i tried to start it and it made a funny sound should i drain the water and put antifreeze and water in it it still has water in it
it has to thaw out and drain before you do anything. i believe the sound is the motor unable to turn because the water pump is frozen solid.
when it freezes like this, ice expands and could crack the bloc. you wont know till it is drained and coolant installed and see if it runs and holds pressure.
We found the radiator where is the petcock
once again, the petcock may be too small of an outlet for the water or ice to escape. remove the lower hose form either the radiaot or the motor and let it hange till it thaws. is the temp up enough for the ice to thaw?? if not, then you need a garage to help the process.
I really appreciate ur help i had just paid this car off. But u think it will be ok
the only way you will know is when it thaws out and you get coolant in it. i would still take it to a shop and let them check it for you before you put it back in service.
