Aero Auto Repair technician Will Pesarini says preventative car care helps avoid overheating. 

Sept. 2, 2022—As California experiences a heat wave, a shop owner offers advice. 

According to 7 NBC San Diego, Aero Auto Repair technician Will Pesarini wants drivers to know prevention can help lower the risk of a car overheating. Parts of California have been hit with record breaking temperatures and wildfires recently. 

As drivers continue to run their cars in this weather, car problems are more likely to occur. Pesarini told 7 NBC San Diego that he recommends drivers seek out car inspections so they are fully informed on the state of their vehicle. 

He also said if a car is actively overheating but the driver cannot stop right away, he recommends running the heater so that the vehicle pulls heat from the engine. 

Additionally, he said drivers should keep coolant in the car. Drivers should have thermostats and coolant levels checked ahead of a heatwave, if possible. 

"Have your vehicle inspected," said Pesarini to 7 NBC San Diego. "Make sure everything is okay, especially when you see a heatwave coming."
