Make Sure Your Vehicle Doesn’t Overheat this Summer with Auto Repair in Milford, NH

Posted on June 19, 2014

Car with open hood At Gurney’s Automotive, we’ve provided auto repair in Milford, NH and many of its surrounding areas since 1985, so have come to greatly understand how vehicles react to the dramatic season changes we experience in New England. In the winter, it’s time to prepare yourself for icy roads with tough tires and, in the summer, it’s time to keep an eye on your engine’s temperature.

Of course you’ve seen them—those unfortunate drivers pulled over on the side of the highway with their hoods open and steam rushing out of their engines. All too often, we come across situations in which a customer’s overheated engine could have been avoided with a bit of maintenance. Simple things like loose hoses and low antifreeze levels can cause a vehicle’s engine to overheat.

Your Engine’s Cooling System

Antifreeze keeps a vehicle’s engine from overheating but, unfortunately, there isn’t an antifreeze gauge that can easily let you know when it needs to be replenished. This is why having your antifreeze levels checked while undergoing auto repair in Milford, NH is such an important service to have done.

And, working with Gurney’s Automotive, we’ll make sure to check your vehicle’s antifreeze levels while servicing your car or truck. We’ll also check your vehicle’s cooling system and your engine’s hoses to make sure everything is working properly and that your engine won’t soon overheat during the dog days of summer. If your vehicle starts to run hot or you hear a bubbling or gurgling sound coming from your engine, pull over immediately. Driving even one extra mile with a damaged cooling system can destroy your vehicle’s engine.
