NO ANTIFREEZE

1998 Oldsmobile Achieva

Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Oldsmobile Achieva 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 201000 miles

My car got hot this morning and it is only 19 degrees outside could this be from no antifreeze in it. It was not leaking any water at all and if so could it thaw out and be okay then.

HI there,

In cold conditions you must run anti freeze, if not you run there risk of doing serious damage to the engine, you will have to ensure it is completely thawed and then check for over heating issues, if OK, get the anti freeze into it.
