Is that steam or smoke coming out
from my hood? If it's white, it's steam from your radiator.
If white steam is coming out your
tailpipe, you probubly blew a head gasket. Either way your
engine overheated and continuing to drive could seriously
damage the engine. Naturally, it's best to keep an eye on
your coolant and temperature gauge to prevent this.
If your car begins
to overheat, turn your heater on to draw some of the heat
out of the engine. Reduce the load on the engine by turning
off the air conditioner and shifting into neutral at stops.
If the temperatire
gauge shows the temperature is too high, pull to the side
of the road. Shut it off and let it cool down. Once it is
cool you can remove the rediator cap. Do not open the radiator
cap when the engine is warm. The radiator is under high
pressure and will spray scalding antifreeze on your face
and hands if the cap is removed when hot.
