An engine that is overheating is a dangerous situation for both you and your vehicle. If you ignore an engine that is having temperature problems, this could cause irreversible damage to your automobile. Not sure why this occurs? Here's some common reasons.

  • The coolant levels in your vehicle may be low. If you don't have enough of this specific fluid, your engine will overheat. Also, it's important to check for coolant leaks that could be causing the drop in fluid levels.
  • A damaged or defective radiator cap can alter the temperature of your engine.
  • There's a thermostat in your engine that monitors the temperature of your vehicle. If it's malfunctioning, your vehicle can begin to overheat.
  • Your fan belt can be damaged, which leads to improper air flow to the engine. It will not be able to cool off properly.
