the fluid and pipes will thaw out if you let the motor idle for about 20
minutes.  always let the motor warm up for 5 minutes or more before
driving in extreme cold.  This is to ensure the oil is thinned out.
make sure the coolant is replaced for winter.  summer coolant can freeze
in the motor and the radiator which could either crach the engine, or
cause the motor to overheat!

good luck,
