If you are in traffic and your temperature gauge begins to rise, shut off power-using systems such as the air conditioning.   Next, turn on the heater and fan to the hottest/highest setting.  The heater unit will act as a small radiator to remove some of the heat from the engine.  Make your way out of traffic as quickly as possible and shut off the vehicle to allow it to cool down.  Make an appointment with us to diagnose the cause of the overheating and get the issue corrected.
