What to Do When Your Car Overheats

What to Do When Your Car Overheats

Even the most proactive vehicle owner can find themselves dealing with a car that’s overheated on these hot summer Richmond days.

You may not be able to see that on your temperature gauge on the dash, so just don’t rush.  Pull out your Owner’s Manual if yo ... read more
