It's almost impossible to take care of your car if you don't understand it. At Lithia Subaru of Fresno, we understand this well, making sure that each customer that we work with is intimately familiar with how to take care of their engine. One of the most important aspects of taking care of your car's engine is constantly checking the dashboard thermometer, making sure that it never stays consistently high.

Having an engine thermometer unexpectedly raise is most often a sign that your engine is overheating. The most responsible way to deal with this is to immediately turn off your car and call a professional service. If the professional says that you should drive it in, then carefully bring you car to the nearest service center.

Because there are so many different elements of your car that might be contributing to the engine overheating (i.e. the thermostat, radiator or water pump), you should get a professional opinion. Regardless of whether or not you're having overheating issues, you should still take your car to be serviced every few months at Lithia Subaru of Fresno!
