How to Prevent Engine Overheating in Sydney
Posted on 21st, Dec 2017
An overheating engine is not something to be ignored as it can cause engine damage. There are many different causes for engine overheating like a malfunction in the radiator, a blockage in the cooling system, or water pump failure. While the situation of your engine overheating should not be ignored, Mega Car Removal Sydney provides car owners with the following tips on how to prevent your engine from overheating.
Be sure that the engine’s radiator cap is in good condition. While checking the cap to your radiator, be sure to check your radiator for debris.
Be sure to keep an eye on the car’s temperature gauge. Temperature gauges are to alert car owners that something is malfunctioning, and when you see it on, be sure to immediately address it to prevent the engine from going into the red area.
Be sure that when traveling you have a gallon of extra coolant and a gallon of distilled water in your boot to top up the radiator. Note: Never remove the cap of the radiator when the car is hot. Always wait two hours from the time the engine was last driven before you remove the cap and top up the radiator.
Be sure to check for leaks under the car.
Be sure to regularly top off your coolant.
Be sure that as part of your regular maintenance check you inspect the serpentine and timing belts.
Be sure that your car’s regular maintenance includes the checking of your cooling system by a certified mechanic.
When the engine overheats you can be in a potentially dangerous situation as your car’s engine is malfunctioning and you can find yourself parked on the side of the road.
