How to stop your car from overheating

As the weather gets hotter, more and more people are having problems with their car overheating.  This is a problem that can be avoided by being proactive about it. The first step would be to check your engine temperature gauge periodically so you know when it’s getting too hot. If not addressed in time, the radiator may overflow or leak which will require immediate attention to avoid damage from occurring to your vehicle.  By knowing how to stop your car from overheating you’ll save money on repairs and prevent any accidents that can happen as a result of this issue.

  • Check the radiator for leaks
  • Clean and replace the air filter
  • Look for a leak in your water hose or connection to the engine
  • Make sure you have enough coolant in the car, which is usually found under your hood by the engine block
  • Get a tune-up to make sure everything is running smoothly
  • Let your car idle for 10 minutes after driving it so that it can cool down before turning off

Do these things regularly in order to avoid any issues with overheating.
