In the hot summer, the engine area of your car can reach temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius. Therefore, it’s important to keep your engine cool. Usually, the air conditioning system in your car is enough to beat this heat. However, your car may be overheating if the temperature gauge needle starts to increase or you notice steam coming from under the hood.
If your engine overheats, it’s likely that one of the cooling system’s parts—including the fan, radiator, thermostat, water pumps, hoses, and coolant—has an issue. Our car service station experts are highly trained to inspect and fix all car engine-related issues.
In Case The Engine Heat Increases-Find A Safe Area To Stop.
It is best to stop driving as soon as your car overheats because continuing to drive can seriously harm your engine, sometimes permanently. Turn off the engine after stopping and move out of the way of incoming traffic.
Open The Hood (Or Call For Help).
After you’ve stopped your car, open your hood to let out any trapped heat, and then wait for the area to cool. Remember to use utmost caution because a heated engine may suddenly erupt with steam or boiling coolant. It’s okay to ask for assistance or call a car service center if you don’t feel confident doing it on your own. Never use bare hands to touch a hot engine or cooling components.
