Don’t Let Your Car Go Unchecked! Get it Done with United Tires!
Your car’s combustion chamber can go more than 1000°F once it’s mobile. To have your car performing to its optimum potential, the temperature needs to be balanced within a certain range. And this is where your coolant tube comes in the picture. Is your car overheating? Here are signs to look for before your car’s condition gets worst.
Your Coolant Fluid Signal Lights Are On
This is usually the thermometer-like signal in your dashboard that lights up when your car is turning on. But if it’s unusually on when you’re driving, there’s a high tendency that the coolant fluid car container is low or there’s a coolant tube leak.
Don’t attempt to open the container if you just turned off the engine. Leave the vehicle to cool off first before attempting to open the coolant fluid car container. Check on the tubes for kinks or leaks. If the hole is small enough, you can do some minor interventions until such time that you get a professional to work on the vehicle.
The Temperature Gauge Is Extremely High Or Low
Normally, the coolant temperature should be in the middle (and in some vehicles, a little above the middle is still good to go). When the temperature needle is slowly increasing (or decreasing) in temperature, your vehicle’s cooling system may be compromised from the radiator to the cooling tube. If you’re not familiar with your vehicle’s cooling system, it’s better to just keep adding coolant until you get to your car servicing center to have it professionally checked.
It Feels Like Winter Inside
Well, this is no brainer. Since the coolant’s purpose is to keep your car’s temperature normal, if your car is overheating, it’s translated to your car’s cooling system. In this case, your car is starting to feel like winter – and its summer! Your vehicle’s valve tempers coolant going through the heater core to maintain the engine’s temperature. Leaks and blockage are common problems for most vehicles cooling system malfunction and will require professional assistance.
Green, Yellow Or Pink Puddles Below The Car
Coolant fluid usually comes in yellow, orange or pink. So if you’re seeing this below your car, then a leak maybe happening inside the hood. Also known as antifreeze, this is crucial to keeping your engine functioning normally. This is a toxic substance and considered harmful for your pets so better keep them away from it!
Should there be no antifreeze material dripping and your car is still overheating, then there’s a possibility that it’s due to a malfunction in the internal engine gasket. Another possibility could be an internal coolant usage so having your local mechanics do the inspection will keep your engine from further break down.
