What should you do when the temperature indicator light comes on while driving?

The coolant temperature indicator light on the Taplo is on, meaning the coolant solution is low, possibly due to a leak or the water pump is not working. The lack of coolant causes the engine to overheat, leading to serious damage. Therefore, it is necessary to take timely measures such as:

  • As soon as the cooling water temperature indicator lights up, pull over to a safe place and stop moving. Should leave the engine in idle mode, switch the air conditioner to blower mode.
  • Do not rush to open the lid of the radiator because when the light is on, the temperature rises too high, causing the pressure of the water in the tank to be very large, if open immediately, water will erupt and burn badly. Instead, open the Capo to cool down the engine system and then open the radiator and check if the cooling water is lost.
  • In case of loss of coolant, you need to quickly refill the vehicle. If you forget to bring coolant, you can temporarily replace it with pure water to keep the vehicle running. Đồng thời, nhanh chóng đến gara xe gần nhất để kiểm tra tình trạng và xử lý vấn đề chính xác nhất.

Note: Some cars have the Capo pin close to the radiator, it is advisable to use a towel or hand liner before opening the lid to ensure safety.

Engine coolant is not ordinary pure water but a liquid with the main ingredient being pure water combined with Ethylene Glycol. This mixture has the effect of heat transfer and anti-evaporation and corrosion additives.

Therefore, only in an emergency, can pure water be used instead to avoid long-term use, causing car parts to be damaged, fuel is not met enough to make the vehicle operate unstable.

What if I ignore the warning and keep going?

In case the driver deliberately ignores this warning and continues to run, the engine will overheat and damage components such as:

  • The lid is hot and warped.
  • The seal ring will be completely damaged.
  • The heat pipe is damaged.
  • The chain ring and transmission rod bushings are damaged by friction.
  • The piston is stuck in the cylinder due to the expansion because of the too high temperature.
  • The engine will make a knock.
  • Lubricating oil's viscosity is reduced, becomes looser, and has poor lubricating ability, causing the connecting rod bushings or crankshaft bearings to be corroded by friction.

Thus, if you encounter the temperature indicator light on the dashboard, do not be subjective and ignore it to continue driving. Because this will cause serious damage to the car engine, forcing you to spend a large amount of money to repair or replace the engine.

Be careful when using coolant

  • If it is found that the cooling water level is lower than the “Low” level, quickly open the sub-tank cap and radiator cap to refill.
  • The cooling water should be changed after the first 160.000 km. The next times should be replaced after the engine has traveled 40.000 km.
  • Make a reminder schedule to check and replace coolant periodically. Because if left for too long, they can be converted to chemical components to create acids or be degraded, causing a blockage in the engine.
