Running Hot | New Orleans Auto Repair

The certified New Orleans auto repair experts at Twin Tire will help when your engine needs attention.

You had just returned from a trip to the zoo yesterday when you glanced at your dashboard as you cut off your car and you noticed that your engine was running hot. Now you're worried that something is seriously wrong with your car and, although you know you should call Twin Tire Auto Care, you really don't want to hear the bad news.

That's understandable. But the longer you delay and try to drive a car that runs hot, the worse the damage. And, the situation might not be as catastrophic as you think. Your engine might be running hot for a simple, easily fixed reason: A hose or belt has failed.

"A belt or hose failure can cause an overheated engine, loss of power steering, and loss of the electrical charging system. If a hose leaks coolant or the belt turning the water pump snaps, the cooling system is inoperable. If the engine overheats, it can suffer serious internal damage that requires expensive repairs and can ruin a summer vacation," consumerreports.org says.

Consumer Reports adds, "Overheating can occur anytime, but usually happens in the summer. Underhood temperatures are much higher, and heat can trigger or accelerate deterioration of rubber compounds."

If that's the case, it's an easy fix to replace the broken belt or burst hose. But it’s also something that needs to be done asap before your engine is damaged.
