ດີ, ລົດທີ່ຮ້ອນແຮງໃນການລ້ຽງຫົວ ugly ຂອງຕົນເມື່ອອີກເທື່ອຫນຶ່ງໃນມື້ນີ້. ພວກເຮົາກ່ຽວກັບວິທີການຂອງພວກເຮົາຈາກສາດສະຫນາຈັກໃນເວລາທີ່ຄູ່ coolant ໄດ້ເລີ່ມຕົ້ນຂຶ້ນ. ລົດໄດ້ຮັບການພັກພາຍໃຕ້ການ 200 (195 ອຸນຫະພູມ) ເວັ້ນເສຍແຕ່ວ່າພວກເຮົາຂໍໃຫ້ມັນບໍ່ເຮັດວຽກ.
ດີມື້ນີ້ມັນ idled ສໍາລັບກ່ຽວກັບການ 10 minutes before I got out of the church and out to the car. With air temps approaching 90 degrees, Kim had idled the car with the A/C on to cool it down before I got in. I think that got it going. As we left, the temp began climbing. Once we got up to around 45 mph, the temp stopped increasing and held steady. I chose to continue toward home, ກ່ຽວກັບ 15 minutes away.
Just a couple of minutes later, the temp began climbing again as we had to keep stopping for traffic lights (due, ແນ່ນອນ, to other drivers not driving in an efficient, timely manner.) With 8 minutes left to home, the red overheat light came on and the display told me to "Idle Engine." That was it, time to pull over. Of course we were on a narrow 2 lane road with no shoulders... ກ່ຽວກັບ 1/4 mile down the road was a small side road. I took it, drove a little ways down the road and stopped. Fortunately, we didn't look like this...
So while we started to sweat, I called AAA. Naturally we were in an area with very little cell phone signal. After several dropped calls, the Lord intervened (again) and I connected. They told us they could get someone there in about 35 ນາທີ. I asked them to "step on it" as neither of us had our diabetes meds with us and Kim really can't take the heat due to her cardiomyopathy.
The tow truck arrived in about 30 minutes and got us home in good shape, even if we were soaking wet with sweat. The car had boiled over about 2 gallons of coolant, out of 3.25 capacity, so the temp had kept going but by the time we stopped, nothing else was boiling over. Now to get the repairs set up. No leaks so I'm thinking fan or thermostat. Ugh! Thank you AAA & Pataskala Towing for getting us home!
