Maintenance Tips: Signs of a Bad Radiator

When your car starts to show signs of a bad radiator, it’s one of the most important parts to have replaced, especially as we enter the cold winter season. The radiator is vital for maintaining a normal temperature inside your engine, so without it your engine will overheat and stop working.

Overheating is the most noticeable sign of a bad radiator. While you’re driving, it’s important to keep an eye on the temperature gauge, which measures the internal state of your engine. If you notice it starting to raise past its normal level, pull over and let the engine cool off.

You might also notice puddles underneath your car. This can be a sign of a leak in your coolant system. The best way to find the source of the leak is to take the car to a mechanic and have a pressure test done, then have the source of the leak patched.

You might notice a sludge-like substance in your coolant tank as well. This usually indicates rusting, which will continue to affect your radiator, so you have to replace any rusting parts as well as flush your coolant system.

We at Gossett Hyundai Mazda Mitsubishi recommend taking good care of your car by keeping an eye on your radiator!




Hyundai Virtual Guide App Will Be First Augmented Reality Owner’s Manual

2015 Hyundai Sonata

2015 Hyundai Sonata – Available at Gossett Hyundai Mazda Mitsubishi

The Hyundai Virtual Guide app, set to be released later this year, will make Hyundai the first automaker to introduce an owner’s manual with augmented reality. The Virtual Guide app will give drivers access to information on repairs, maintenance, and the vehicle’s features.

At first, the app will only be available with the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, though it will soon become compatible with more vehicles. Any smartphone or tablet user can get the app through the Google Play Store or the iTunes Store. With the ability to track your car and retrieve information on various parts of your car, the Hyundai Virtual Guide will prove extremely useful for maintenance as well as education.

The app contains over 80 how-to videos, recognizes 45 features of the Sonata, has more than 50 informational guides, and lets users scan images of their vehicle to create 3D overlay images. This incredible array of features is aimed at educating drivers on all the things their cars can do and be more accessible for “the growing population of tech-savvy consumers,” as Hyundai puts it.
