We all have or know someone who has used the age-old wisdom of warming up your car before going to the road, mainly during the cold seasons. For this month, we will share some things that you didn’t know about the warmth your vehicle engine creates.
As we mentioned earlier, the age-old wisdom-warming-up method is not as effective as we all think. Many vehicles no longer require you to warm up before driving. But that is not the only thing you should know that causes your vehicle engine to warm up.
Below are some examples of what can cause your vehicle engine to warm up:
Low coolant levels – If your car doesn’t have enough fluid to keep the engine viscous, it will begin to damage the engine block.
Radiator malfunction – If there’s a problem with the radiator (most commonly a leaking one), the engine can’t get the coolant where it needs it the most.
A broken water pump – With the water pump broken, the car will only get hotter and hotter.
A cracked hose or belt – Without the hoses that pump fluids around your car, it’s becoming more and more damaged over time.
If you notice any issues with the temperature gauge, don’t wait any longer– bring it to Dowdy’s Automotive to get a complete engine diagnosis and have your car ready for the cold seasons.
