Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Elantra
I did not notice that engine temp went up to H. I probably ran it for another 5 or 7 mins before stopping. The workshop flushed the radiator and the car runs fine for now. I'd like to know if the car is safe to drive for another few years. Anything else could be damaged because of the overheating? What signs I need to watch out for to know if there is any engine problem?
Chances are that your engine is ok. Bad engine overheating can seize the engine. Less extensive overheating can crack the engine especially the cylinder head and lead to power loss or mixing of water and engine oil. If water is mixing with oil, the oil looks milky. If your car is not losing power and the oil looks normal then chances are that there was no damage to your engine.
Just make sure that whatever caused the overheating in the first place is sorted out - perhaps the radiator flushing resolved the cause of the overheating.
