Steaming Hot | Wichita Auto Repair

The certified auto repair technicians at Tracy’s Automotive can help you when your car starts running hot.

You were planning on heading to Prairie Pines tonight for the Field of Screams. It’s one of your annual Halloween jaunts. But you think you’re going to miss it this year because your car seems to be sick. When you pulled into the driveway last night, you noticed the temperature gauge was on the high side. You’re not sure if it’s wise to drive your car at least until an auto repair technician has a chance to take a look and evaluate the situation.

You’re very wise to be cautious. One of the symptoms of a bad water heater is a temperature gauge registering that the engine is running hot. If your water pump is broken or malfunctioning, that’s an emergency situation for your engine.

“There are some parts of a vehicle that, when failing, do not need to be immediately replaced. A water pump is not one of those parts. Due to the vital role the pump plays in cooling the engine, if it stops working, there will be fast consequences including possible all-out engine failure,” says. “Replacing a bad water pump isn’t a quick job, but it’ll save you from the worse job of replacing your engine.”

Drivers should know the warning signs of a bad water pump to help make sure they act quickly if a problem arises. Among the signs: Car running hot, steam or smoke coming from under the hood, coolant leak, and/or a whining noise.

Drivers should be especially aware of the urgency of the situation if they see steam or smoke coming from under the hood.

“If you see smoke or steam coming from your radiator or under the hood generally, your engine is too hot and has probably already suffered a lot of damage. Pull over immediately and call for help. Wait for the engine to cool off before poking around, as you’re dealing with scalding-hot coolant and potentially other unexpected dangers,” advises.

If you don’t have a trusted auto mechanic to help out in emergency or other situations, then it’s time to get to know the reliable Wichita auto care specialists at Tracy’s Automotive. Tracys’s Automotive will provide personalized care for your car.
