Why is My Vehicle’s Engine Overheating?

An engine is a complex piece of machinery that needs to be serviced regularly to stay in optimal condition. When you engine is overheating, it should be inspected immediately because it could be a warning sign of a serious problem. If you vehicle’s engine is overheating, here are a few reasons why it could be happening.

A common reason an engine overheats is because it is low on coolant. When coolant levels are low, the cooling system isn’t able to function properly. Although coolant fluid decreases with normal use, it could also be low due to a clogged radiator. In addition, a damaged radiator and/or faulty water pump, which is a critical component of a cooling system, can also cause an engine to overheat.
