Place a space heater in front of it for and hour or so and then check it for leaks by putting water in. then if no leaks you must drain the water and install the proper mixture of coolant to water

Try to run it a little at a time to thaw it out just 30 secents or so if your lucky your block didn't crack or your soft plugs didn't come out you will have a water leak if they did you need antifreeze you can get some and pour it in but will need heat of some kind to thaw it running to long frozen will wreck your waterpump so go slow

Where is the water pump located on a 2001 olds. Intrigue?

If the engine is sideways, it would be located on the left side of the engine by the belts. See if a hose is hooked up to it.

Why 1998 olds intrigue is running hot.

1) Is it really running hot, or is the temperature sending unit or gauge incorrect? You could use an alternate temperature sensor to test - infrared temperature gauge.
2) Just because the radiator was cleaned out doesn't mean it isnt blocked. Check to see that water will flow through the radiator.

VDC Light stays on, then start to heats up

test the scanner and computer test for most effective result.
However see if fan/waterpump drive belt is slipping. Coolant is frozen
inlet or outlet water hoses are clogged or kinked. Coolant tube is blocked. Temperature gause is defective. Water pump defective. Fan is too far from radiator,(close it) .Defective water distribution tube. replace the tube. Fan insuficient blade are or pitch replace with large fan or with more blades.
God bless you

I have a 2000 voyager that my water pump went, i lost all the coolant, so i just added water. the temp was out side 10 - 15. the temp is still the same. i went out to start my van, the serpentine belt...

If you do not have acess to a warm garage so you can though the van out properly,it is going to be tough.One can only asume that if the radiator is half full of frozen watter and the bottom rad hose is frozen as well that the block will be half frozen also. You need to remove the radiator, hoses and thermostate.Plug in block heaters,put about half a bottle of strate ANTI- FRE.... in the engine where you took the thermostat from. Place an adiquet drip pan under watter pump area.Thaw Radiator and hoses out in a warm plase.Once the block is thawed out you can install the radiator and hoses and a new belt.If you think it is taking to long to thaw out the engine block you can purchase a heater that will stick to the bottom of the oil pan they are magnetic and very strong,the more heat the better.Good Luck.

Water frozen in the engine what is the best way to get it melted when there is no opertunity to get in garage and temperature is below freezing?

I would say hairdryer or heated blanket. Where in the engine is the water frozen? Is it in the engine block or in the radiator. If in the block, then you may need new frost plugs in the engine block. If in the radiator, then you will want to run very hot water through the coolant system with the petcock unscrewed so water can drain out. Does the engine start? Can you run it so the engine heats up and melts the water?

How to change radiator 1998 oldmobile intrigue

Hope this helps you. Here are the basics. There are many problems you may run up against (frozen bolts, stubborn or cracked hoses, rusted clamps, etc)that may need to be fixed or replaced before proceeding: SHut off engine, allow to cool completely. Disconnect the cooling fan, remove negative battery terminal connection. Drain radiator by opening draincock and/or removing lower radiator hose, collecting coolant in a drain pan. Do not let it go onto the ground - bad for environment! Open top radiator hose to allow remainder of coolant to flow out. A few quarts of coolant will remain in the engine block. You will want to totally flush and refill AFTER replacing the radiator to get all the crud out of the system. Unbolt radiator and disconnect any other items still attached (transmission cooler, temp sensor wires, etc.). Remove radiator and replace with new, reattaching all items removed from old radiator. Inspect other items and possibly replace suspects. Reattach hoses and make sure the clamps are tightened without pinching hoses excessively. Do a flush job with water/radiator flush, making sure the water runs clear out the draincock. Instructions for flushing the cooling system are usually printed on the radiator flush bottle. Be sure the heater is on and the engine warms up completely to open the thermostat. SHut off engine and drain as much water as will leave. Fill with 50% coolant mix (Dexcool or equivalent). Estimate water remaining in the engine and add 100% coolant to balance. COmplete fill with 50% mix. Remove air by running engine until warmed with the radiator cap off, adding coolant mix along the way.
