My 2002 Saturn SC2 didn't have much coolant in the car when I bought it off the used lot, but I would mix water with it every other day(did this for about a month, I know not very good to do), till I got coolant, well the other day it overheated, when I popped the hood, there was no coolant/water in there. I also see that my ac compressor is burnt up now, the copper shavings are melted and have fallen, and now my battery was dead, I took it to oriellys to get it charged, they called me back a minute ago saying it was still good. A couple of us have this theory that the ac compressor was bad and was pulling the battery too much, and therefore my cooling fan wasn't operating(electric) + I didn't have much coolant, is there a chance if I put the recharged battery in something else will happen?
or is there possibly another explanation to this,
I'm not to sure if I waited long enough too put water in the coolant tank to cool it off though after overheating, is there also I chance I might have cracked the cylinder?
have the same problem?
