What Are the Causes of Engine Overheating?

Your engine is an extremely important part of your vehicle - it is often referred to as the heart of the car, making sure that your vehicle runs and runs smoothly. When your vehicle engine overheats, this can be a huge cause for concern. Excessive heat on your engine can cause metal components to begin to warp and become damaged, which can lead to expensive repairs that you want to avoid. 

If your engine is overheating, you may find yourself stuck on the side of the road or notice that your engine temperature gauge is fluctuating from warm to hot excessively. Here are some of the reasons why your car engine may be overheating:

  • Coolant leak
  • Blockage in coolant circulation
  • Faulty thermostat
  • Failed or damaged water pump
  • Clogged radiator
  • Low coolant level
