Hi, I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Today, we're going to talk about what to do if your car is backfiring or overheating. The first thing we're going to do is stop, shut the car off. Let's find what the culprit is. If your car is backfiring and noticeably hesitating, there's something amiss. You have to find a safe place to pull over right away. Once you found a place to pull over you can then assess the situation. Turn your car off, turn off all your accessories including your air conditioning and your heat, restart your car and see if everything's normal. If there's something still amiss you may need to be towed. If your car is also overheating at the same time this is a dangerous situation. If your engine cannot get rid of its heat, it'll burn itself up. It'll melt into a blob of molten metal and that's no good for you, good for your mechanic but not good for you. So if your car is backfiring and overheating, it's a good idea to pull over right away and these are a couple of quick tips on what to do if your car is backfiring and overheating. I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
