How to fix Transmission hot idle engine

Today I’m going to talk about something special. How to fix Transmission hot idle engine. There are so many ways that you can do this. But some people don’t do this process correctly. So today I will explain the correct and simple way to do this.  Avoid panic and stop as soon as possible. Engine overheating, while serious, will not immediately damage your engine. If your thermometer reads red or you notice steam coming from the engine, slow down and stop as soon as you find a safe place. If you notice white clouds coming from your engine, it’s not smoke but steam from an overheated engine, and you have time to stop. If you cannot stop immediately.

Turn off the air conditioning and open the windows. Turn on the heater and the fan at high speed; this draws heat from the engine. Turn on your hazard and drive at a slow, steady speed until you can stop. When no more steam comes out, open the hood. If the car is not too hot, turn it off and open the hood. 

If the hood is very hot to the touch or you see steam, it is recommended that you wait until the hood has cooled before opening it completely. Opening the hood helps dissipate some of the heat from the engine. Turn off the engine and leave the key in the ignition switch in the “on” position. Your lights, dashboard, etc. they should still be on. This will allow the cooling fans to run without running the engine, which will help speed up the cooling process. Allow the engine to cool completely before touching it or opening the radiator cap. This cooling process can take 30 to 45 minutes, but can prevent dangerous burns.

How to fix Transmission hot idle engine – Check the upper radiator hose

Squeezing the upper radiator hose can help you determine if your system is pressurized, and therefore if it is safe to remove the radiator cap. If it’s firm and hard to squeeze, the system is probably still under pressure and you shouldn’t remove the radiator cap. If the hose is easily compressed when squeezed, you can safely remove the radiator cap. Use a rag or towel to handle this hose as it can be very hot.

Leave the radiator cap open until it cools down

The pressure and steam inside can spray dangerous fluids into your face. For added safety, leave the radiator cap on the car for as long as possible. If it feels hot to the touch, leave it on. An overheated engine can have coolant up to 260F. In a sealed system, it will not boil. However, when exposed to air, it boils quickly and can cause severe burns. Wait for the system to cool down. Turn the radiator cap. Carefully twist the lid with a thick towel or rag. The cap exposes the fluid in the radiator or expansion tank to the atmosphere. If the radiator cap doesn’t have threads, you’ll need to press on it after loosening it to disengage the safety lock. This will allow you to completely remove the cover.

After the engine has cooled sufficiently check the coolant reservoir. It usually takes 30-45 minutes. The reservoir looks like a white plastic milk jug and connects to the radiator cap. There’s usually a mark on the side that lets you know how full it needs to be.

How to fix Transmission hot idle engine – Check the engine for leaks

The most common cause of engine overheating is a leak in the cooling system. Look for fluid in the engine or under the car, especially if the coolant is low or empty. That being said, cooling systems need pressure to work, so even a small leak that doesn’t expel a lot of coolant can cause problems. Coolant usually smells good and can appear in the pipes, under the car, or around the radiator cap. It flows more like water and is not as thick as oil. The coolant in older models is usually green, but the color of the coolant can vary depending on the make and model of the car. Wait for the car to cool down and add coolant. If you have coolant, add some after the car has cooled, usually after 30-45 minutes.

Open the radiator cap and pour a little, about 3-5 seconds. If you have water, mix the coolant and water more or less evenly, and add: Most engines run on a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water. In a pinch, water can replace coolant, but you don’t want to use it for long.
