How to keep your car below boiling poimt. ALL CARS!!!
most times in the heat your cars cooling system can over load, to stop overheating, always check your vehicles radiator water never the overflow resevoir.
always make sure your top radiator hose is hot, when running and your thermo fans come on automatically when on average heat temp. (half way).
make sure you cannot hear any noises ( clunking, grinding etc) from the waterpump, and always make sure you dont see water leaking from the vehicle ( except when air con is on).
if you do spring a leak always get it repaired ASAP as delay may further damge your cooling system, eg, head gasket and or head, effects may be warped, bent or cracked cylinder head.
always check your radiator and top up if needed at least ONCE A WEEK to avoid damage. and keep your overflow resevoir kept on the correct level.
cooling system failure can produce a big effect on your engines running capability and also your wallet!!!!!
keep your car cool in the heat!!
and also note, coolant or anti freeze does not keep your car cool, it is a corrosion inhibitor and only prevents corrosion and muck in and around your cooling system, your thermo fans keep your car cool!!!!
