How to Keep Your Fuel Pump from Failing?
A: Have at least a quarter tank of fuel at all time When you drive on reserve, your fuel pump works over time to retrieve fuel from the tank, including the dirt in the tank, clogging your fuel pump and drastically shorten the life span of the pump.
What to do when the temperature gauge rises?
A: This may be a sign of cooling system malfunction. Continue driving in this state will cause the head gasket to fail. General rules to follow should you experience a cooling system malfunction: When the temperature gauge rises; pull over. * Verify if the vehicle has visible coolant leak. * If yes,
wait until the car cools down and only open the coolant reservoir cap when there is 0 pressure. You may use water (if outside temperature is above freezing) to fill reservoir. If you don't loose the water right away, you may drive (to a repair facility) until the temperature gauge stays in the middle of the indicator, or you don't get a "coolant level low" message in the cluster.
If you see the water rapidly leaking out, car has to be towed.
* If you don't experience coolant leak and the car shows signs of overheating, it must be towed.
