Did you ever replenish the ANTIFREEZE so the mixture in the engine wouldn’t actually FREEZE?

It’s been pretty cold lately - be very careful - serious engine damage will result if too much WATER has been added to the cooling system!

Icing in the radiator will certainly cause engine overheating.

Good luck!
