Car Overheats – What to Do

Car Overheats – What to Do

Unfortunately, a vehicle overheating could happen to everyone - it is highly unpleasant but it may occur. In the following article, we will share with you what you can do if you find yourself on the road with a vehicle that overheats.

1. Pull over, and then safely park the vehicle so as not to cause problems to other drivers or yourself. After you have done so, turn off the engine and let your vehicle cool down for at least 10 minutes.

2. Opening the hood of the vehicle will ensure a faster clearing of the heat.

3. You can turn the ignition to its first position, without starting the engine, after the vehicle has cooled off. After checking and making sure that the temperature gauge is within a normal range and the engine fluid levels are quite sufficient, you can try and start the engine (only if those criteria are met).

4. If the case is that the car doesn’t want to start or is making unusual noises, then simply stay on the side of the road and call for roadside assistance. They will tow your car and will be able to take you to an auto repair shop. There, a professional mechanic will be able to determine what is wrong and how it can be fixed.

We hope that you will not need the aforementioned information, but you can never be too safe!
