Stranded!

Post by RenRaine » Sat Aug 24, 2019 6:21 pm

Hey burner family!
Our van has broken down 15mins east of the nevada border from salt lake city (conveniently in the middle of a salt lake) on our way to BRC and most mechanics are closed til monday. Our van says it is overheating so we have tried adding water to the coolant to get it to the next town but no luck. If anyone could help us that would be amazing!
Please let us know if you can help <3

Heya!
Thanks for your reply! :)
We have a tow truck coming to get us and take the van back to salt lake city in the hope of getting it fixed (though that wont be til monday). My mate doesnt think just putting coolant in it will help... i dont know anything about cars so im not sure.
I think at this point he is looking into RVs or Uhauls to rent for the weekend just so we can get there. Fingers crossed I guess :(

When this happened to my ride we 'burped' the radiator and that fixed it.

It is common to have overheating in cars that have recently had their radiator serviced.
