Vehicle Overheating

With the hot summer on its way, we need to check our car cooling Radiator over heating smlsystems. We can all perform a few simple checks which can help avoid costly repair bills when big problems occur.

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.
