So guess what, my car was acting up again. It was nothing like before, but it still scared me. Lately I have noticed that my heat hasn’t been working. I would be driving and no matter how warm the car’s temperature gauge says, it would always blow cold air. It sucked. I wasn’t going to take it into the shop until September because I wouldn’t be using the heat very much as it’s getting nicer outside.
Well, I was on my way to work yesterday and I noticed that my temperature gauge was rising. It was past normal and almost at High. That meant that the car was about to overheat. Luckily, I was right near Peter’s work and so I pulled in there and got him to look under the hood. My coolant/antifreeze tank was completely empty!! To make matters worse, my back up coolant tank was empty too! Talk about scary.
So he filled both tanks up with water and the temperature went back to normal. Next time I go and get an oil change, I will get them to empty the tanks completely and fill them up with antifreeze. AH! I was so lucky that I was near Peter’s work. I don’t know what I would have done if I had overheated and had to pull to the side of the road. It totally would have sucked!!!
To make the situation a little better, on my way to work this morning, I had the heat on my feet, and it was blowing hot!! I was so happy. So it must have been the coolant (or lack thereof) that made it blow cold. I am so happy. I don’t have to take it into the shop. WHOO. My car also made me happy today because it was so beautiful and sunny out that I got to drive with my convertible top down. YES!
What a wonderful spring day
