Прегревање аутомобил, део 2

overheat-indicator

Добро, прегревања аутомобил гаји своју ружну главу данас поново. Ми смо били на путу кући из цркве када температура расхладне течности почели пењање. Ауто био боравио под 200 (195 термостат) осим ако ми дозволите да у празном ходу.

Па данас је Идлед за око 10 минута пре него што сам изашао из цркве и до аута. Са аир темпс приближава 90 степени, Ким је Идлед ауто са А / Ц на то да се охлади пре него што сам добио у. Мислим да је добио иде. Као што смо напустили, темп почела пењање. Once we got up to around 45 mph, the temp stopped increasing and held steady. I chose to continue toward home, око 15 minutes away.

Just a couple of minutes later, the temp began climbing again as we had to keep stopping for traffic lights (due, наравно, 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... око 1/4 mile down the road was a small side road. I took it, drove a little ways down the road and stopped. Срећом, we didn't look like this...200447960-001

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 (поново) and I connected. They told us they could get someone there in about 35 записник. 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!
