What to do when your car is overheating

When your car is overheating you should pull over as soon as it's safe and turn off your engine. You should never open your radiator cap when your engine is hot, the coolant is under pressure and it is very hot and cause burns. You should also never pour cold water into a hot radiator the water could instantly boil and then shoot out of the radiator causing burns. The best thing to do is to wait until your engine has cooled off this could take 20 minutes to up to an hour.  Give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures, Heather

Why does my car overheat when stopped

Your car is overheating when you're driving due to restricted air flow to the radiator and the engine. When you're stopped and idling there is no air flow. You may have a coolant leak of some kind or your radiator may be plugged with debris. Either way it needs to be checked before it does damage to your engine.  Give us a call and let us take care of you.  Happy Adventures, Heather
