The gauge to cooling system says normal but car over heats, I have to put water in it when ever I use it. Ive have plugged it in the past due to radiator leak. Today the water is frozen cap wouldnt come off and the reserve is frozen. What do I do?

First, sealer is a very bad idea as it clogs the radiator.

Second, you do not have sufficient anti freeze in the system. You may have damaged the block from this. It needs to be thawed out and pressure tested to see if the system is ok
