It will overheat when your car reaches its maximum temperature. Car engines normally operate between 195 and 220 degrees at a normal temperature. If you want to keep a good fuel economy and proper emission control, you have to keep the proper temperature for your car.
There are a lot of variables that can help overheat your vehicle. Perhaps this has something to do with the cooling system, so heat cannot properly flow into the engine compartment. An issue may also be the cooling system, radiator fan, water pump, or coolant hose.
There are risks your car could face if it overheats. Harm can be caused to the cylinder heads and other components such as sensors, belts, and wiring. It can also result in decreased power, misfire, and excessive oil burning in your engine.
You will prevent your engine from overheating and maintain its normal temperature. Here’s how you can improve car engine efficiency:
- Regularly check your radiator and car coolant
- Turn off the car’s ac system
- Pullover on shaded areas
- Bring extra coolant and water
- Have window tints installed
