Did I ruin my radiator?

Asked by Feb 06, 2015 at 07:25 PM about the 1996 Oldsmobile Ciera

Question type: General

I was forced to side-swipe a snow bank going ~20 mph due to a reckless driver. No
structural damage at all, but I believe snow shot through my grill. Moments later, my
heat stopped working altogether. What happened?

Probably packed the radiator / condenser with snow. Remove the snow and try it.
