It is imperative to keep your vehicle’s engine in good condition to maximize performance. When your vehicle’s engine begins to overheat, it is recommended to get it inspected by a mechanic as soon as possible to prevent serious damage. Here are a few reasons your vehicle’s engine may be overheating.

Low coolant levels is one of the most common reasons an engine will overheat. When the coolant is low, the cooling system is hindered. Although it is normal for coolant levels to decrease over time, low coolant can also be caused by a clogged radiator. In addition, a faulty thermometer, water pump, and/or radiator may also cause an engine to overheat. When a hose collapses or is damaged, it can lead to overheating as well.
