Question

My car often overheats in hot weather. What should I do to prevent this happening on long journeys?


Answer

Check that the cooling fan functions correctly. It is advisable that you get this rectified properly to avoid the engine sustaining any permanent damage. Fuel consumption is also affected by an overheating engine - as is oil consumption, so check your oil levels regularly.
