After locating a Tank, simply hop inside and drive a few laps inside it. Now, jump out of the Tank and go to its rear end. You will find the engine of the Tank with gold plates on it.

Shoot at it with any weapon of your choice for 3 to 5 seconds, and the engine will erupt in flames. If you try to access the Tank at this moment, it will display a message saying "Temporary Disabled: Engine Heated."

Remember, after 10 seconds, you can again use and drive the Tank.
