1999 Plymouth Voyager Van- Was leaking water from a hose near the top (Small leak). I did not have funds to fix that problem since I'm unemployed. The temperature dropped to 25 overnight and the remaining water froze inside the vehicle. I poured lukewarm water over the radiator and engine in an effort to SLOWLY melt the water inside. After about 20 minutes of doing that I filled up the radiator with warm water. I started the engine and allowed 10min for the vehicle to warm up. Drove the van about 1.5 miles when the engine heated up suddenly. I stopped and refilled the radiator once more except now all the water I put in leaked in real time from somewhere in the middle of the engine (I could not locate the source of the leak). What could be a possible diagnosis and best course of action outside of a mechanic shop?
