You rely on your car to get you from point A to point B with a few stops along the way. Routine maintenance is necessary to keep your car running smoothly. What happens when your car makes a steep climb or experiences stop and go traffic on a hot summer day? Do you fret as your car radiator causes the temperature gauge to climb? It could be due to low coolant level or something more complex.
If you have a ways to go before you reach KC Auto Repair and your engine is starting to run hot, turn off the air conditioner. A little bit of discomfort to you often provides the ability to reach the mechanic before the car shuts down. In some cases, the car should be parked in a safe area and the repair shop called in case the vehicles should be towed in.
When an engine overheats, possible damage may include blowing a head gasket, warping or cracking the engine head, or warping or cracking the engine block. None of these scenarios are good for your car. An ASE Master Technician will perform a compression test, oil analysis, cylinder leak test and an oil filter inspection to check for possible damaged areas. The results are discussed with you along with recommended repairs.
If you find yourself in a situation where your car is overheating, avoid the risk of causing further damage to the car radiator and engine. Instead, contact one of the professional ASE certified technicians at KC Auto Repair in Tulsa. An ASE mechanic will evaluate the cooling system by using diagnostic checks to verify all elements are in good repair and functioning properly. KC Auto is open from 9 in the morning until 5:30 at night Monday thru Friday. Give them a call today at 918-834-0665 to prevent problems tomorrow.
