How do I unfreeze my 1995 Cadillac Escalade? Motor frozen solid in frigid minnesota, easy fix?
We had almost reached the Iowa minnesota border when the engine temp rapidly went through the roof, and we had to pull off north of clear lake, where we saw not much travel services except the Diamond Jo casino and a burger king.
We were unable to find any proper cooling fluid, so we had to try to think of an emergency alternative just to get to canada where we might find a mechanic in fort Frances.
We stopped at burger king where we were able to get some ice cold KoolAid which we hoped would lower the engine temp, and we didnt really know where to pour the koolaid into the coolant, but we just poured the koolaid into the empty plastic reservoir under the hood,
We then went on further, and the a little red neti pot light on the dash lit up, and the engine was running a little rough. We pulled off, and found a cap with a neti pot symbol on under the hood, and poured more ice cold koolaid into the empty metal tank. Steam poured out when we put it in. and then we kept going, but the engine still run rough, and quite hot
THe car motor then just lost power, and then ground to a halt at a high temp, and it goes clack, when i try to restart.
