Your vehicle should work smoothly without having to deal with major issues occurring such as overheating while on the road. If you do find that your vehicle's temperature gauge is running high or that your engine is overheating and shutting down your car, this is a major cause for concern.
An engine overheating usually points to one thing - there is an issue with your vehicle's cooling system. The cooling system has the important job of circulating coolant and keeping your engine parts lubricate to protect them from overheating and regulating overall operation temperature. When your engine overheats, corrosion and damage can quickly occur, which can lead to you needing engine repairs.
Here are some of the most common causes of vehicle overheating:
- Bad radiator
- Failing thermostat
- Faulty water pump
- Cracked or leaking radiator hose
- Faulty cooling fan
- Coolant leak
- Low coolant
- Failing fan switch
