Our daughter was making the 6 hour drive from her condo to ours.
She makes this drive at least once a year so both of us weren’t sad.
However, she called about an hour from our condo plus said that her car was close to overheating. She explained that she had ran tests on the fluids plus they were nice however that the temperature gage had been straddling the yellow line for over an hour now. I told her to turn off the car’s air conditioner plus to turn on the heater. That would help detach heat from the engine. But, if the gage went into the red, she needed to pull over plus call me. I would come get her. It was a very boiling afternoon so I cranked the air conditioner down in our condo in preparation for her arrival. Sure enough, our daughter pulled into the driveway about an hour later. She was boiling plus uncomfortable however her car made it. She was very grateful for the air conditioning system in our house. After all, she had just driven an hour with the furnace blasting away in her car; Every one of us were all relieved that she was here safely. While she napped in the air conditioned condo I took a look at her car. It turned out that there was nothing wrong with the cooling idea at all. It was just a faulty heat sensor. So she didn’t need to run the furnace in the car at all. I didn’t tell her that though. I just fixed it for her. Now she can use her air conditioning system when she drives back in a month or more than one.
