No one wants to be this guy. However, it is all too easy to find yourself in his shoes. All you have to do is ignore the temperature gauge or warning light on your dash board, or neglect the periodic maintenance that your vehicle requires to remain safe and reliable.
The fall season is the perfect time to get your vehicles ready for the upcoming colder weather, and a cooling system check should be at the top of that list. Coolant fluids deteriorate over time. A simple quality check of your coolant strength along with a visual inspection of the belts and hoses is all it takes. If you are due for a coolant flush, this inexpensive service will ensure
that your engine is protected from overheating or system damage due to freezing temperatures.
Important: An engine without coolant will only run for a few seconds before it will literally seize up—requiring major repairs or even engine replacement. If your temperature gauge moves from its
normal range, a warning light comes on, or you notice steam coming from under the hood, safely pull off the road immediately, turn off your engine, and call a tow truck. Don’t take any chances!
