At the first sign of the engine overheating, action should be taken. The longer this issue persists, the chances of complete engine failure increase. If the radiator hoses are not secured to the engine or radiator, coolant is leaking out and making the engine work harder.

The radiator cap could be missing, or worse, it might be the wrong one for your vehicle. If the cap cannot contain the high pressure of the coolant, evaporation is leading to the engine overheating. The thermostat could fail and instead of the coolant reaching the radiator where it cools, it is trapped inside the engine block where it is reaching dangerous temperatures.

If the cooling fan fails, the coolant stays too hot and will cause the engine to eventually overheat. Our crew of auto service professionals can quickly identify the source of the engine overheating to make your ride safer and protect your investment.
