Hot temps can push your car past its limit
A new warning for drivers as the heat shows no signs of letting up. AAA says hot temperatures can push a car past its limit.
A few simple things can keep you from getting stranded:
- Make sure your battery is ready for the heat by getting it tested.
- Flush the engine's cooling system and watch for cracked rubber hoses.
- Blowouts are more likely in the heat -- so check the tire pressure.
No matter how prepared you are breakdowns can still happen. Keep extra water in your car in case you find yourself stuck on the highway.
