The searing summer heat is on and this kind of extreme weather can be trying for your car leading to a hot engine. It is very common for your car to bother you with problems restarting if you have just turned off the car engine in summers. The best thing to do is be patient and wait for a few minutes until trying to start it again
When your car engine is too hot, fuel cannot circulate well, due to the way vapour obstructs it workings and therefore the engine just will not start, as it should.
How to Cool down your Car this Summer?:
Top up the Coolant and Check the fluids: Low coolant is the most common cause for engine overheating. The expert team of ASE certified mechanics at Mission Car Care combat this issue with using a properly designed coolant. It is the coolant’s job to circulate and remove heat from the engine. Our team also checks the brake fluid, automatic transmission fluid, washer fluid and engine oil so that your engine is properly lubricated this summer and there is reduced heat build-up.
Check the Electric Fan and Radiator: Are you having over heating problems while your car is stuck in traffic? Bring it into Mission Mission Car Care on Clay Road, Katy, Tx where we will also check the electric cooling fan which is responsible for drawing cooler air through your radiator.
Sometimes your fan motor will just burn out. There is a switch that tells your cooling fan to come on when your coolant reaches a certain temperature; there might also be something wrong with the switch which can be easily replaced. If you have a vehicle engine which uses a fan belt to drive the engine cooling fan, Mission Car Care can easily and affordably replace your fan belt easily if it's broken. We also flush your radiator every year which is the quickest way to fix your car’s overheating problem.
Check the Thermostat: When you are driving fast your engine needs lots of coolant flowing through. If the thermostat doesn't open, there isn't enough flow to keep things cool and you will have a car that is steaming hot.
Check for a Leak: When the outside temperature escalates, the pressure in your gas tank can also increase, which must be vented to prevent the gas tank from deforming. Your car’s evaporative system is a network of hoses, valves and canisters that manage evaporative emissions from your vehicle. It might be a loose gas cap or a fuel leak in this system which our team will detect to find out the reason for a heated up car.
