Asked by Dec 11, 2013 at 04:10 PM about the 2000 Ford Taurus SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car overheated and Lost all antifreeze/Coolant. I had to put water in it, the temp
dropped ALOT and the water froze, I did add some coolant when I got home so it isn't all
Water but I can see where there is a layer of Ice in my overflow, the car starts but it
makes a weird noise. I don't want to drive it until I figure this out.

park it in a heated garage until that melts...then find the leak, and put in the proper 50/50 mix~
