Hi,
My husband changed my rad this summer and put water instead of antifreeze in teh rad. Now it has frozen. Can you please tell me the most effective way to thaw out the car without damaging anything.
thanks,

Check if you have the factory engine block heater if it has plug it in for 2 hrs if not you need a blower to thaw it down. If it doesn't have the factory block heater install an inline block heater on the heater hose-
