Don't Overheat | Wichita Auto Care

An overheated engine can damage your car. Tracy’s Automotive can help if your car overheats.

You’re headed back home from the Cowtown Museum after the Ghost Hunt when you notice your car’s temperature gauge is climbing high. You get an immediate sinking feeling because an overheated engine can cause massive damage to your car.

Overheating can have several causes, according to auto insurer Nationwide. Among them: low or no coolant, malfunctioning thermostat, low oil, and/or a broken radiator fan.

“Of course these aren’t the only possible problems that can cause a car to overheat. It’s a good idea to find a reliable mechanic who can diagnose and service your car,” says.

But before you call a mechanic like those at Tracy’s Automotive, you need to deal with your overheating situation. Nationwide suggests you:

  • “Pull over to the side of the road, park your car and turn off the engine as soon as possible. Let your car cool for a minimum of 10 minutes.
  • “Open the hood of your car to allow the heat to clear out quickly.
  • “Once your car has cooled off, turn the ignition to its first position (don’t start the engine). If you see that the temperature gauge is within a normal range and engine fluid levels are sufficient, try to start the engine.
  • “If the engine makes unusual sounds or it does not start at all, it’s best to stay on the safe side and call for roadside assistance to have your car towed. This will allow for a mechanic to inspect it and make the necessary repairs.”

You can find a trusted Wichita auto repair technician at Tracy’s Automotive.
