If your car overheats, don’t continue driving. Pull over and stay calm. Tracy’s Automotive can help you fix what ails your car.

You were at a stop light on your way home from the Museum of World Treasures when you noticed the smoky steam coming out from under your hood. Seeing smoke coming from under the hood is one of the worst experiences a driver can have.

What do you do? Well, you do not panic. And you do not continue to drive for any distance. Pull over as soon as you can and follow thedrive.com’s recommendations: ” If your A/C is on, turn it off. If you can’t pull over and stop the car, turn on the heater, as it will draw in the warm air from the engine and dispel it into the cabin. We suggest rolling down the windows at this point so you don’t overheat yourself.

“Once you’re in a safe location, pop the car’s hood and allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes. You can then do a visual inspection of the engine bay to see if the overheating issue was caused by a bad hose, loss of coolant pressure, leaky radiator, or bad fan. If you can repair one of those issues with what you have in the car, do so and head to a mechanic’s to have it properly repaired. If you can’t, you’ll likely be calling a tow truck.”

There are many reasons a car can overheat. They range from the simple bad hose to the more complex bad radiator, blown head gasket, broken thermostat, or bad radiator fan, just to name a few. Your best bet is to let a trusted Wichita auto repair technician diagnose and fix the problem.
