What Causes Engine Overheating?

Your engine's cooling system is extremely important, and a failure could cause widespread damage to both your engine and your vehicle as a whole. Keeping it in working order is important, and making sure that any signs of engine overheating are dealt with quickly is imperative to both your safety and the safety of anyone else on the road.

There are a lot of ways that your cooling system can fail, and any one of them can contribute to engine overheating. By far the most widespread cooling issue is a lack of coolant. Over time, your coolant can drain from regular usage, or it can drain more quickly due to a leak or other issues. It's important to make sure that your coolant levels remain high in order to prevent further damage to your engine. Of course, there are other issues which can cause your engine to overheat as well, such as extreme temperatures, damaged components, such as water pumps, radiator fans, or coolant hoses, and many other possible issues.
