Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Am
Ok, so my heater coil blew out in my car, smoke came out of my vent, and rust colored anti freeze came in under the dash (also burning my foot, OUCH!). When it first happened (I obviously) did not realize that it had been running hot. Once it started smoking and the antifreeze came out I instantly cut the car off and coasted into a nearby parking lot. Once that happened it did not start back up!? I changed out the heater coil already, but now it won't run. I have flushed and re-filled the radiator and I KNOW I put the part back in exactly as it was before. The key will turn, and it acts as if it wants to start, but (sigh) nothing. :( It will not start. I checked the battery and its good, it just won't start. Any suggestions on what may be wrong? Thanks.
You may have blown a head gasket before the heater core went. In fact, that's probably what made it explode.
