blown radiator hose.

hi everybody, i am Sam, i am new to bimmerwerkz and i have a question for ya. my 93' 325IS just overheated this morning in -15 degree weather after about 5-7 mins of driving. very strange. my opinion is that the radiator froze last night in the cold because of improper antifreeze to water ratio. the other thing is maybe the thermostat is shot and wont let new coolant into the engine. the hose that blew is right after the thermostat though so i dont know. any opinions would be awsome. hopefully nothing major, just a hose a and some new coolant. if you want to check out my car...http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2368538
thanks

If I was you... I'd fix the hose... put it back on... fill her up... bleed the system... and try again... with a proper water ratio.

Good Luck,

Les

Check the rad to to make sure it didn't crack. Improper mixes will do that in a heartbeat, especially up north. Other than that, Les has it down. 10 to 1 it wasn't the stat, just bad mix in the antifreeze.
