Common Reasons Your Engine Might be Overheating

While it's not necessary to become as knowledgeable as a mechanic, having a general understanding of how your car functions and what signs of trouble need immediate care can save you money and keep you from becoming stranded. An overheating engine is not a problem you can ignore, as delicate engine components will be damaged when exposed to high heat.

A clog in your radiator can result in blocking the coolant that circulates through your engine and cools it. This is one of the most common causes of an engine overheating and can be resolved easily by a good mechanic. Engine components like your water pump, fan, thermostat or hoses failing can cause your engine to overheat. Extreme exterior temperatures make it difficult for your engine to cool itself and can also be a factor.
