  • You drove your car in traffic at a slow speed in a low gear (1st or 2nd) for a long time. In low speed the engine has to accelerate from low speed more often & has to produces more power and gets heated-up faster. This led your car engine to get extremely heated up. Nothing to worry if your car has sufficient Coolant of specified quality.

  • Please check if the temperature is getting high and then the engine is stopping. After 10 minutes if the engine is able to crank, read the temperature at this instance. This could help to conclude on this problem

  • Expert Hi Gangatharan. Your engine probably overheats, get it inspected at an authorized centre.
