Why YOU need an Engine Guard…
Engines overheat. There are many causes, but the end result is engine damage and/or engine write-off, and the cost of repairs can run into thousands of Rands. In most cases no warranty or insurance applies with the end result beaing YOU pay the repair bill and you have to do without your vehicle until it’s fixed, and in the case of a Business – this equates to downtime and loss of productivity.
That’s why you need an ENGINE GUARD. It’s cheap insurance against overheating. But unlike your accident insurance, it’s a ‘once off’ purchase that gives you peace of mind and can save you big RRR into the future. If the engine overheats, you get warned – LOUD AND CLEAR. No more trying to catch a glimpse of the factory gauge. You can just relax and watch the road- and that’s got to be safer.
The ENGINE GUARD system is VERY EASY TO FIT:
Suitable for every vehicle make and model, trucks, busses, boats, pumps, generators: basically any piece of machinery where temperatures need to be monitored
Suitable for ALL water or air-cooled petrol, diesel and electric engines/motors
Can be fitted by any home handyman – DIY. The compact display unit fits on/under the dash with easy adhesive mounting tabs
The ‘Easy Fit’ temperature sensors takes a few seconds to bolt to the engine & transmission, monitoring temps from 0℃ to 125℃ (celcius and fahenheit)
The the Digital Control unit requires an ignition 12vdc and an ‘earth point’ hard wired to your vehicle’s electrical system, an optional cigarette lighter jack can be ordered
Suitable for 12 & 24 volt DC systems and is reverse polarity protected
The ENGINE GUARD sensors are perfectly safe to fit because it does not require you to “tap” into the existing cooling system, oil system or the transmission in any way, so it cannot cause coolant leaks , oil leaks or transmission leaks, or void the engine’s warranty.
The ENGINE GUARD has an optional “cut-off or switch-on” module to activate or deactivate fuel and/or electrical supply – immobilizing the engine/motor immediately
Engine Guard also has an OPTIONAL extra loud SIREN & WIRING HARNESS for very loud driver/operator cab environments i.e. trucks, civils equipment, boats and aircraft
Warranty – 1 year from date of purchase. The ENGINE GUARD is not a ‘throw away’ item, it is fully transferable and will give a life time of service, as replacement parts are inexpensive and freely available
Additional sensors can be ordered as and when you require additional protection options.
ENGINE GUARD overheating alarms
Engines overheat and fixing the damage can cost serious money. In most cases no warranty or insurance applies. You pay the repair bill & do without your car until it’s fixed.
That’s why you need an ENGINE GUARD.
LOUD audible warning – keep your eyes on the road & drive more safely
Get warned BEFORE damage occurs- super fast DIGITAL responses compared to factory gauges EVEN IF THERE HAS BEEN COOLANT LOSS
Works if you’ve LOST coolant- shows cylinder head temp. Most factory gauges don’t work without coolant.
Digital display in degrees- provides feedback to MANAGE engine temperature

Below are some statistics on regarding Engine Guard
DON’T RISK IT! PROTECT YOUR ENGINE TODAY!
HOW IT WORKS:
The Engine Guard uses a completely separate bolt-on sensor and an accurate digital display- totally independent of the factory temp gauge. The sensor is installed onto the engines cylinder head, as this is a very accurate predictor of overheating- after all, this is where the combustion takes place.
In testing, we have reliably demonstrated that if an engine has a sudden loss of coolant, head temps will start to rise within 20 seconds.
As the alarm set point is usually set around 2 – 5 degrees above the normal highest operating temperature, it will give very accurate and timely warnings, both VISUALLY and AUDIBLY.
This will enable you to see changes in real time- quickly and accurately and avoid engine overheating. YOU set the audible alarm to warn you if the temperature is higher than normal.
By precisely monitoring the engines metal temp instead of coolant temp, the Engine Guard can detect engine overheating caused by low coolant, radiator blockages, engine coolant leaks, faulty thermostats, water pump failure and restricted air flow over the radiator caused by obstruction like grass and seeds.
What YOU get with an ENGINE GUARD.
The ENGINE GUARD detects ALL the causes of transmission and engine overheating.
Coolant loss via leaking hoses, split radiators, faulty radiator caps, sticky thermostats
Water pump failure, coolant blockages, air flow restrictions
Oil system problems
VISUAL & LOUD audible warning – You can just relax and watch the road, not your guages- and that’s got to mean you drive more safely.
Get warned BEFORE damage occurs- super fast response compared to factory gauges.
Works even if you’ve LOST coolant- as it shows the true cylinder head temp. Most factory gauges don’t work without coolant present.
Digital display in degrees- provides feedback to MANAGE engine temperature
So this is why you need an ENGINE GUARD. It’s cheap insurance against overheating. But unlike your accident insurance, it’s a ‘once off’ purchase that gives you peace of mind and can save you big RRR into the future. If the engine overheats, you get warned – loud and clear. No more trying to catch a glimpse of the factory gauge.
THE ENGINE GUARD CAN DO EVEN MORE!
Utilising an additional (optional) sensor it can also be used to MONITOR and provide AUDIBLE & VISUAL warnings on:
Monitoring both the temp of your engine AND auto transmission – great to know if you’re towing a caravan.
Monitoring your engine cylinder head temp AND engine oil temp without tapping into oil galleries – a great feature on turbo diesel engines.
Monitoring multiple separate cylinder head temps on V8, flat 4 and V6 engines.
Monitoring dual engine set ups such as in boats and planes.
Monitoring radiator IN temps and OUT temps to check radiator effectiveness.
Monitoring “LOW” OIL pressure – connects to the standard oil pressure switch circuit and will trigger the buzzer when the low oil pressure warning light is illuminated.
Digital volt meter with optional high or low voltage alarm. Measures voltages in a range between 0vDC–33vDC. Great for dual battery set-ups (warns of overcharging/discharging that can cause damage to batteries) or alternator monitoring
The Sensor can monitor virtually anything within the temperature range of 0°c -125°c.
Can also be set up to operate a relay system to switch ON & OFF functions when alarmed i.e. diesel and petrol fuel cut-off solenoids

“We found the Engine Guard to be surprisingly responsive, temp changes registered quickly. As soon as the load came on temp started up but dropped equally quickly when load came off. The standard temp gauge remained steady throughout a 20-25 degree range so it was the Engine Guard that did the work”
Two irrefutable conclusions:
1) Standard gauge is rubbish, it’s only a feel good dial of no practical worth.
2) Engine Guard worked well and gave us the info we needed, almost instantly, every vehicle should have one.”

“Thanks again for the unit I received Friday. I was going away the next day so wired it up temporarily as it arrived at 2.30 in the post. We set off at 7am and about 40 kilometers later the alarm went off with high water temp and as I pulled over it went into red on the dash. This managed to save my $4000 recon motor in my BMW. Many thanks for the quick delivery.”
