If the engine gets hot pull over and let it idle untill temps go down. If it's not cooling down because all the coolant is gone then shut it off.My perspective is from a normal operating eng
Ya im not sure what I was thinking with the lights...................
I understand warping could be a problem.
I for got to also point out it also depends where the temp sensors are placed.
