Engine Cooling & Radiator Service

If you see that your engine is overheating, there are a few safety precautions that you can take to cool it down until you can get it to Palm Springs Kia. Pull over to a safe area to allow the engine to cool off. Raise the hood of the car to allow any trapped heat and smoke to escape.

After about 30 minutes to an hour of letting your car sit, try to start it again to see if the temperature gauge is still reading hot. If so, slowly open the water reservoir to put coolant inside. This will usually begin to circulate throughout the cooling system.

If you have enough time to let the car sit for a few hours, then open the radiator cap to add coolant to this area before driving in Cathedral City, CA. There might not be enough coolant in the system to begin with, or there could be a leak that needs to be fixed.
