Engines create a lot of heat. This heat would cause a complete breakdown if it was not controlled and this is the job of the cooling system.

Problems show up as:- The temperature gauge showing a high reading, especially when the vehicle has a heavy load or is travelling up hill. The temperature gauge moves from normal to hot and back again. The vehicle could smell ‘hot’. Steam may come from the radiator.

The Solution:- It can be as simple as filling the system with a coolant/water solution. If that does not not work then a flush of the cooling system may be needed. The thermostat, seals, water pump and hoses may need replacing in severe cases. The worse case a new radiator as well as water pump may need to be fitted.

Have your technician test the coolant and cooling system at each service. The cooling solution has a limited life and should be tested and changed on a regular basis. If the vehicle is hot put your heater to maximum heat and the fan to full as this can help. Stop as soon as safe to do so, wait till the system cools, try moving again and if the same happens call Tech 1 Auto Care Ferntree Gully.
