Some Common Causes of Engine Overheating

To avoid serious damage to your car's engine and thousands of dollars in repairs, you should know some of the reasons why your engine overheats. The number one culprit of overheating is a component of your car's cooling system is not allowing heat to release from the engine compartment.

Problems with your car's cooling system often include coolant leaks, blocked hoses, problems with the radiator, a faulty thermostat or a malfunctioning water pump. Another common problem is the fan that cools your radiator might not be working properly, which can cause the internal temperature of your engine to rise. Sediment and dirt can also get inside your coolant system's hoses, which stops fluid from flowing properly.
