Sounds like to me you need to find where the coolant leak is! Bone dry!! Where did it go while it was parked?
was told fill radia. up n drive it, see if temp guage starts risin, look 4 leak. Is this safe to do?

Oil cooler possible freeze, ruptured tank. Better drain oil pan, and possible transmission for water before you run it. Was the oil level high on stick.
