Question type: Maintenance & Repair

All hoses and Water pump froze 2 nights
ago from 5 degree weather and caused all
this. Not sure what to fix first and I can only
fix one thing at a time. What's quickest way
to go about fixing this??

have it towed to a heated garage...then do a coolant flush~

if you've lived a good clean life and did not refill with hosewater...and DID not put the proper 50/50 mix right away...you may have a cracked block...call the donation station if this is the case~

Plus you can't fix ONE thing at a time, it must all be done at once as the cooling system is a closed system. Heed the Judge.
