Repairing Your Overheating Engine


Repairing Your Overheating Engine

When the weather is warm, we rely on our car’s cooling system to keep temperatures in the engine compartment under control, and keep us on the road. Your cooling system is a series of components that circulate coolant through the engine to absorb heat, then circulate air around the coolant to get it out. If any part of the system stops working, you’re on the side of the road while your engine takes a steam bath.

The best medicine is preventive. You should flush your radiator on schedule to keep the system clean and well flowing. Unfortunately we aren’t always lucky, and things go wrong. Let us help you figure out why your car or truck is running hot or overheating.

if your engine is overheating shortly after you leave, or it heats up even on short trips, you should check the following possible causes and repair suggestions.
