Fifty per cent of all the damages in a summer period are: engine, wheels and battery breakdowns.
 
Be careful! During the summer, engine should work in a temperature of 80 to 95 degrees centigrade. After crossing the border of 100 degrees, you have to turn up at the nearest vehicle control station because a long ride with such problem can finish with a catastrophe.
 
Why does it happen? Most often, the reason is a thermostat breakdown. This part is beyond repair, it needs to be exchanged. Another ‘perpetrator’ can be draughty cooling mechanism. Its breakdown is signed by billows of smoke from below the bonnet. In such situation you need to stop a car in a safe place as soon as possible and stop the engine. Watch out! You cannot pick up a bonnet because of a hot steam.
You also have to remember that engine work in extremely high temperature can break the rings, pistons or head. In such case you have to reckon with expensive repair in a specialist garage. To avoid it, it is worth controlling the cooling liquid level and during the drive-control the gauge of engine temperature. In addition, it is worth checking the battery charging level.
In the summer, battery charge goes flat proportionately to the level of outside temperature.
 
You cannot forget about the tyres which are used up faster during high temperature of the surface. Tyres get more elastic and undergo deformations. We should control the pressure in tyres- it can help to avoid many breakdowns, even tyre burst during the drive.
