All my fluids are froze or slushy. My 1998 grand Prix won't start.
Will it crank over if you jump it? If so, you've got a dead battery. Pull your oil dipstick. Is there white milky" goop" on it? If so your intake manifold gasket has most likely failed. GM 3.8 liter V6s are notorious for this. It's a real possibility that you have coolant in the cylinders. If so the engine could be hydrostaticly locked. Also sounds like you don't have the proper 50/50 mixture of antifreeze/water in there. With that said if you have even a small amount of coolant in a cylinder it's probably frozen the piston to the cylinder wall and that could be why it won't crank over. If you can, get the car to a warmer spot like a garage. Let it sit for a day and try to start it. Once you get it running, warm it up then drain out about a gallon of coolant. Refill it with straight antifreeze and bleed the system. Check your freeze protection once the car cools off again. It should be protected to -34°F. That's the factory recommended spec. HTH. -Jim
