If your car runs hot, you need a skilled New Orleans auto repair specialist to get things going again.
You're looking forward to a weekend of fun activities, like the Greek Fest. But before you get to chill out and have fun, you believe you're going to be spending time with the trusted New Orleans auto repair experts at Twin Tire Auto Care. That's because your car's temperature gauge was in the high range when you got home last night.
You're right to be concerned. A car running hot can do a lot of damage to the engine if not quickly fixed. It sounds like something's wrong with your cooling system. Auto.howstuffworks.com explains why you need a functional cooling system:
"Although gasoline engines have improved a lot, they are still not very efficient at turning chemical energy into mechanical power. Most of the energy in the gasoline (perhaps 70 percent) is converted into heat, and it is the job of the cooling system to take care of that heat. In fact, the cooling system on a car driving down the freeway dissipates enough heat to heat two average-sized houses! The primary job of the cooling system is to keep the engine from overheating by transferring this heat to the air, but the cooling system also has several other important jobs."
Allowing the engine to quickly heat up to an optimum temperature is one of those other functions. So, you see, the cooling system helps things heat up, just not heat up too much. When something goes wrong with the cooling system, you definitely need the qualified New Orleans auto repair and auto care pros at Twin Tire.
