While excessive engine heat can be incredibly damaging to your engine, low temperatures can be just as harmful, particularly to your cooling system. Van Horn Hyundai of Sheboygan is a Hyundai dealership located near Plymouth is home to some pretty intense winters. As a result, we know a thing or two about maintaining your cooling system during the rough winter months.
Your cooling system is a component intended to maintain an optimal temperature for your engine. Engines run hot, no matter how you spin it, thanks to their combustion propulsion system. That said, there is a point where this heat can become overwhelming and can pose a significant risk to your engine. While high temperatures can be troublesome for your engine, low temperatures can pose an equally serious risk.
While coolant is designed to stay fluid even in below-freezing temperatures, this essential fluid can still freeze at if it gets cold enough; temperatures that are all too common for Sheboygan winters. When coolant freezes, it can impose high pressure within your radiator, which is dangerous in itself. And if you attempt to start a car with frozen coolant in the radiator, you can end up burning off the belts in your engine, which can be quite costly to repair. For this reason, we highly recommend that you seek out one of our Hyundai service representatives to get your cooling system winter ready before temperatures drop too low.
At Van Horn Hyundai of Sheboygan, we’ll get your car all ready for the worst winter has to offer. No matter if you’re driving a Hyundai SUV or a compact sedan, everyone should be prepared for the kind of cold winter in WI can deliver.
