Question about Pontiac G6
Depends on how much water got down the intake, the engine may be locked up due to that alone not water being frozen. Water being pulled into a running engine, can and will cause other damage. It can bent rods, cause the pistons to seize, due to lack of lubrication. To answer your question about how to thaw it out if ice is the problem, Cover the engine as best as you can with a tarp or blankets, with the hood up for room. Put a good drop light or or Halogen flood lights to shine down on the block (not so close as to burn or melt any thing but create some heat). If you have a small electric heater you can set it in there also but remember not so close as to cause some melting. Cover the wheels and the grill so as to keep as much heat in the engine compartment as you can. Yes this may take quite a few hours. Leave the spark plugs out until you think it is thawed, then try to turn the engine over. With the plugs out it will allow the water to blow out.
