Summer is just around the corner and that means things are going to get hot here in L.A. And we’re not talking about the weather but YOUR CAR!!. That’s right, when the weather is going to turn scorching (like it always does here in the summer), that will strongly affect your car. This is the time of the year that we start getting a lot of calls for cars breaking because of overheating. And we mean A LOT of these calls…
So we strongly recommend that you get your car prepared so you won’t end up stranded. The first thing you should do is get the radiator flushed. This is a simple procedure that any mechanic can do that will ensure that your radiator is clean and working well.
The next thing you should do is start checking the coolant level in the radiator every couple of days. When the weather will get hot that your radiator will use up a lot of it and last thing you want is to be driving around in the summer with low coolant levels.
Sometimes no matter how many precautions we take the does end up overheating. If that happens it is very important you immediately pull over and turn off the engine, in order to avoid causing serious damage to the vehicle. Once you did that DO NOT try to examine the engine yourself! An engine that is overheating is extremely dangerous to anyone that tries to touch it.
All you need to do is call us at Los Angeles Towing and we’ll send a driver to you right away to help you out if you need a flatbed towing or any kind of towing services!
