I've been adding water to my overflow tank due to radiator leak now everything froze overnight including all hoses are froze with ice in side hoses and radiator car started for second them cut off


Hi Darrell:
This is a not nice situation.
- If you're lucky you won't have too much damage.
- If you're not lucky there is possible damage from popped frost plugs, cracked block, broken water pump, ruined radiator.
- My recommendation.
- DO NOT TRY TO RUN ENGINE.
- Thaw out engine. Depending on how low the temperatute is you might be able to do this with a blanket over and light bulb or portable heater under. Be aware of fire hazard and act accordingly. Don't put the light or heater where thawing fluid will drain onto it.
- Inspect engine to determine extent of damage. It's OK to start it for a few seconds to make sure it's working. If you let it get hot you can ruin it.
- Plan on replacing (or repairing) the radiator and putting in the correct anti-freeze coolant.
Best of luck.

Stalling and overdrive


IAC ( idle air control ) location. You need to be sure to clean pintle (pointed end) of motor as well as spray clean inside port where it comes out of. Careful not to lose small "o" ring on motor.

Make sure it's getting fuel. Try using some ether or starting fluid. If it rumbles to life but doesn't stay running then there's a problem with the fuel delivery system. i.e.... Fuel pump, clogged filter, pressure regulator.... If the ether doesn't change the results you are getting now then it's a fire or sensor problem. Ignition coil, relays, sensors not signaling, PCM... I wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out

Sounds like your IAC motor is getting stopped up. Clean out the passage, and the throttle body. If that doesn't work, get a new IAC motor.
