It hasn't been THAT cold, although we did have one night where it may have hit zero degrees. The average temp at night has probably been 15-20 degrees.. I don't make a lot of short trips in the car, but I definitely do occasionally. I had never heard of this issue before his happened, or else I would obviously have avoided those types of trips without the engine heating up.

The mechanic stated that they have gotten the engine running but the exhaust is still blowing a ton of smoke. Wouldn't that indicate that I haven't hydro locked the engine and it should be ok? I really hope I don't have to replace this engine...
