Overheating Your car? Not good.
With the boiling-hot summer weather right around the corner, now is the time to brush up on car basics and car maintenance. When your temperature gauge is in the red, your vehicle’s engine is running too hot and that can damage your car or even destroy your engine.
Don’t Let Your Car Overheat.
5 Steps to take when your car is overheating:
1. Turn your engine off.
If your car overheats on the road, the first thing you need to do is turn it off, open the hood and let it cool off.
2. Never remove the radiator cap.
Do not uncap the radiator system or the water system. It will be under high pressure and will blow off and burn you.
3. Let the engine cool off.
If your engine starts to overheat, it will give you plenty of warnings and show yellow and red lights. That’s the time to pull over before you could actually damage anything.

4. Fill up the antifreeze coolant.
After the car has cooled – open the system up and fill it back up with new antifreeze.”
5. Carefully monitor the temperature gauge.
If the temperature gauge crosses over to hot or red – pull over and turn the engine off.
Overheating can blow-up your engine. Don’t be that guy.
