The big freeze

Ok I just went to drive to the gym and checked my water situation and all the radiator hoses are frozen. Nooo! I have used anti freeze but obviously not enough. What I wanna know is will this damage anything because of the expansion when they froze? And should I try defrost it? If so, how?

Thanks

Re: The big freeze

If you run the car they should defrost. or park the car in the garage or something for a while and wait for it to defrost. Or run hot water over hoses. You should have 50/50 mix antifreeze and water. (some antifreeze comes pre mixed.....read the lable). If you had it 50/50 it would have never froze. drain the coolant by removing petcock on bottom of radiator and refill with 50/50 mix. Then it should not freeze again.
