The car is heating up; the engine warning light comes on, and you can see steam coming from the hood of your engine. “Not now!” you think. You know it could mean your engine if you don’t immediately pull over and let the car rest. Overheating cars is a serious situation. Your car’s temperature climbs and is no longer able to support the engine and mechanical damage can occur. Loman Car Removals Perth provides car owners with the following tips on the causes of engine overheating and how to prevent engine from overheating.
There are different reasons that engines can overheat with a common problem being a problem with the cooling system. The cooling system is comprised of parts like the water pump, radiator, thermostat, heater core, and coolant hoses. When one of these components become worn or broken the engine may overheat.
Cars can also overheat because the coolant level is too low or there may be a coolant leak. Leaks along with too much space in the coolant container cause air to get sucked in and circulated. When the air rises to the top of the car’s cooling system it causes an airlock and the engine will start to heat up, causing the car to overheat.
