Ford Ecosport 1.5 Petrol Review

Today I had the opportunity to drive a Ford Ecosport 1.5 Petrol Titanium version and here's what I found about the Titanium version of...

Engine Temperature Gauge Reads High

Car Trouble Symptoms
Engine temperature gauge reads high. Temperature gauge reads hot only on hot weather at any given speed.
Car Problem Diagnosis
The usual cause of gauge that reads high is the lack of engine coolant. So will check first the there is enough coolant.

Now, open the hood of your car and remove the radiator cap. Make sure that the engine is cold when removing the radiator cap to avoid getting burn when the steam pops out the radiator. After removing the radiator cap, look down into the radiator fill hole to check the coolant level. The coolant should be enough to cover the radiator fins to tell that the radiator has enough coolant if not then the coolant is low. Another way of checking the coolant level is by looking at the coolant recovery tank. Check your vehicle owner’s manual on how to check the coolant level on the recovery tank.

Possible cause of engine temperature gauge that reads high

Lack of Coolant
Engine must have the right amount of coolant to cool it down making the engine work more efficiently. Because the coolant level is low it is not sufficient to cool the engine and it causes the temperature gauge to read high.

All about car recommendation
Make a 50/50 mixture of water and anti-freeze. Pour enough amount of the fluid mixture into the radiator. Remember that the coolant level must cover the fins inside the radiator. Also try to check the radiator for any leak because how come the coolant level inside the radiator gets low. Crawl beneath your car and look for any puddle of coolant, if none then it might be an internal leak that causing coolant to become low. Have your car check in the shop to make sure.

Clogged Radiator
When the radiator is clogged it can cause the engine temperature gauge to reads high because the coolant is not cold by the air that hits the radiator fin especially when driving past. The radiator cools the coolant if the radiator is clogged then it will not work well to cool the coolant.

All about car recommendation
The first thing to do is to clean the radiator for any debris located on the face of the radiator, clean the debris with hot water and soft brush, then back flushed the entire cooling system. Back flushing is running water thought the cooling system in opposite direction of normal coolant flow. This procedure will remove rush and particle build-up inside the cooling system and restore the efficiency of the system.
