Overheating Toyota

"The Toyota overheats," explained the driver, "because the auxiliary fan doesn't run."

Although he was able to drive the Toyota for about 8 kilometers, the car still overheats when idling. That happens because there's no flow of air needed to cool the radiator while you're parked or while you're stuck in traffic.

The radiator cap broke because of the strong pressure in the radiator, the oil and battery lights went on, and the car died. This happened after who knows how many minutes of driving while the engine had a strange clanging sound. Driver Benny explained that it was probably the noisy piston rings.

Anyway, Angel was able to get help from bystanders along Roxas Boulevard, the details of which will be posted in Angelhouser.

"So, how do I safely drive an intermittently overheating Toyota?"

Bring about a gallon of water and watch your temperature gauge. When it hits the 3/4 mark, pull over to the side of the road. Lift the car hood and pour water on the radiator. Keep the engine running and watch the temperature go down. After a few minutes, drive towards the nearest service center. And pray that you don't get stuck in traffic.

I hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve problems with your overheating Toyota.
