Engine Temperature Light

Engine Temperature Light

The engine temperature light is one that will come on when your engine is overheating. This has a higher chance of coming on during long trips, but may come on at any time. This could be a simple issue with the temperature sensor, but also has a chance of being an indication that you could cause serious damage to your vehicle by continuing to let it over heat. When a vehicle overheats it means that the engine is not being cooled properly and is at a temperature that is extremely hot. If this light would come on while you drive we recommend that you pull over and call immediately to get the correct assistance. Give us a call today and we will be happy to assist. Bob's Main Street Auto & Towing is able to assist with the tow as well as the auto repair
