Be Aware! Keep Your Vehicle Safe, Dependable and on the road longer
Glyn Morgan is the owner of the newly opened Car Clinic in Çatalköy and will be giving us regular tips on maintenance to help us keep our vehicles on the road and this month this is what he has to say:
High temperatures can aggravate cooling system problems too. Low coolant level, leaking hoses and broken electric cooling fans can all result in overheating and expensive damage.
If the fan is broken it will soon become apparent when you meet slow moving traffic and the engine temperature soars. It costs nothing to take preventative action and you should look out for the following.
- Check the coolant reservoir level regularly
- Look out for wet or white staining on coolant hoses
- Check the fan by running the car to normal temperature and allowing the engine to idle for 5 to 10 minutes – the cooling fan should cut in automatically.
