Is the water pump working or did you damage it during the freeze up.
Watch for coolant flow, if you have to splice in a clear piece of hose.
Head gasket?
Block damage?

2000s10rz2 radiator froze up and now its thawed NO HEAT??

-Yes. If it's frozen. There is no water can run through the heater core. That's why no heat.
-How do you know it's frozen...? Did put just water into it. No antifreeze at all ? If so then it can crack the radiator or even the engine block as well.
Good luck

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.
- 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.

I have a 99 oldsmobile alero 2.4 engine. it froze up. i drained it after it thawed and filled w antifreeze and water. now its overheating and heater is blowing cold air. what could be wrong?

check the oil and see if there is water/antifreeze in there, the oil will be milky, if it is you will need to rebuild the motor or else get another depending on what froze up. Also, something else may still be frozen up, park the car inside a heated garage and let it warm up for a few hours and then try run it again, there may be ice blocking the coolant from getting to the motor from the radiator.

2000 Oldsmobile alero had water in the coolant and it froze over night now it over heats and shoots the coolant out the overflow . I don't think the water pump is out. What else could be wrong?

Very serious.... don't over heat too much or your car will break..... could be the thermostat is hooped... or the water pump.... make sure the car is completely thawed.... but i'd she over heats take her to the mach.... night cost a few bucks but no car costs a lot more

Overheating problems

First, you should have replaced the thermostat when the first signs of cooling problems..(the over flow reservoir is just that)..Its time to replace the thermostat, the hoses, and have the radiator flushed and the engine block reverse flushed..Check for coolant in your oil.. if there IS coolant in your oil..(light colored chocolate milky).. its time for a qualified professional... Good luck...

Opened the coolant resovoir and the coolant was frozen

Please add antifreeze on your coolant to prevent this situation. A frozen coolant is dangerous to your car.

99 Firebird still overheating after repairs and antifreeze

overheating is most likely a bad thermostat, but the coolant loss is a second big concern. Does the exhaust look like steam? You could have a cracked block and the coolant is leaking into the engine. Also check the oil for contamination.

How can I thaw frozen heater coil hoses?

If your heater core hoses are frozen you should immediately drain the coolant out of your radiator and engine and refill it with the proper mixture. Your lucky if your heater core lines are the only thing that froze, it could have popped a freeze plug or two out of the block. You could use a hair dryer or heat gun if you need to unfreeze it quickly.
