汽車過熱, 部分 2

過熱指示器

好, 過熱的汽車今天抬頭再次. 我們對我們回家的路上,從教堂當冷卻液溫度就開始節節攀升. 該車一直住在 200 (195 恆溫器) 除非我們讓它閒著.

那麼今天它閒置約 10 幾分鐘前我離開教堂,並到車上去了. 隨著空氣臨時工臨近 90 度, 金正日已經閒置車與A / C上冷卻下來之前,我得到了在. 我認為,得到了它去. 當我們離​​開, 臨時開始攀登. 一旦我們得到了高達約 45 英里, 臨時停止上升並保持穩定. 我選擇了繼續往家, 關於 15 幾分鐘的路程.

就在幾分鐘後, 臨時開始再次攀登,我們必須保持停紅綠燈 (應有, 當然, 對其他司機以高效不開車, 及時處理。) 同 8 左家分鐘, 紅色過熱光來到上,並顯示告訴我, "怠速發動機。" 這是它, 時間拉過來. 當然,我們在一個窄 2 無肩車道... 關於 1/4 英里的道路是一個小岔道. 我拿了, drove a little ways down the road and stopped. Fortunately, 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 (again) and I connected. They told us they could get someone there in about 35 分鐘. 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!
