Engine Overheating? | New Orleans Auto Repair

When you need a New Orleans auto repair pro to help you with your radiator, call the New Orleans auto repair experts at Twin Tire.

It never fails. If something is going to go wrong with your car, it's going to happen at the worst time - in heavy traffic or when you're headed someplace fun like the Blues and BBQ FestivalFirst, your car runs hot, then you see steam coming out from under the hood. Next thing, you're sitting by the side of the road because your engine has overheated.

"Overheated engines are most often caused because of an issue with your car’s engine coolant, whose job is to circulate through the engine and radiator to keep them cool in the summer," Angie's List says. "Antifreeze coolant passes through the engine block to absorb and transfer heat."

Angie's List adds, "Because an issue with your cooling system can cause damage or complete failure to your engine, mechanics recommend adding a cooling system service to your car’s regular maintenance schedule."

That should be done about every 30,000 miles or three to five years unless your car starts telling you one is needed before that time. Symptoms indicating your car needs a radiator flush include a temperature gauge that swings between normal and hot and back again, grinding sounds from the engine, a pool of antifreeze under your car, and steam and/or a hot maple syrup smell coming from under the hood.

If any of those symptoms appear, it's time to get your car to the New Orleans auto repair technicians at Twin Tire Auto Care as quickly as possible. Whether it's regular radiator flushing and maintenance or radiator repairs, the reliable New Orleans auto repair pros at Twin Tire can help.
