Chances are you have blown a head gasket and must replace before even attempting to start the vehicle. You need to drain all the oil and replace the oil filter as well. You probably have water in the cylinders and depending how long it has been sitting, depends on how bad the rings and cylinders are corroded. Try taking all the spark plugs out and dry fire the engine. If it cranks, then you can get away with putting some marvel mystery oil in each cylinder and leave it in there till you replace the head gasket. Note that your oil must be changed at least two more times to make sure all traces of antifreeze are out of the engine.

Is it OK to use prestone antifreeze in the cooling system?


Yes but usually a mix of 50% water and 50% antifreeze is required. Some Prestone antifreeze is premixed so it is better to use that. Fill to the radiator cap.

Need to drain coolant from 1998 Olds Intrigue. What is best way? (3800 Engine)


COOLANT CHANGEON THE RADIATOR (LOWER DRIVERS SIDE FACING THE MOTOR) THERE IS A PLASTIC LIKE PLUG THAT YOU TURN COUNTER CLOCKWISE ABOUT 3/4 OF A TURN, THEN YOU CAN PULL IT OUT ABOUT 1/2 AN INCH THIS WILL DRAIN THE RADIATOR, THEN YOU CAN PUSH THE PLUG BACK IN AND TURN IT UNTIL YOU FEEL IT LOCK BACK IN PLACE. REFILL RADIATOR WITH 3 PARTS COOLANT TO 1 PART WATER.
1998-'99 Intrigues equipped with the 3800 engine have a specific process for replacing antifreeze. It is somewhat of a lengthy process and you should refer to your owners manual for doing this. After you empty and flush your system with water (garden hose), only fill the system with green 50/50 antifreeze, NOT Dex-Cool. Avoid Dex-Cool. If you bring your Intrigue to a shop to get serviced, make sure and inform whoever doing repairs and/or leave a note (clearly visible) to NOT use Dex-Cool if they're doing any work pertaining to cooling system.
