update to iced engine

Just wanted to thank all again for the assistance. If you remember the PO had apparently not beleieved in anti freeze and my cooling system was frozen (literally).

Anyway it was an easy fix and thankfully nothing was damaged. I just left the belt off and fired up the engine for a couple of minutes to produce some heat in the block and head then cut it off. Used a heated balnket to warm the rest of the engine compartment for a little while and just topped off the radiator with anti freeze to melt the ice in there. Within an hour I had drained the nasty water that was in there, replaced it with a nice 60/40 mix, got everything put back together and running much better. Knock on wood, but it appears that the jeep suffered no injury throughout the ordeal.

moral of the story, as nice a person as they may be, NEVER TRUST THE PO TO HAVE TAKEN CARE IF EVERYTHING
