When the temperatures outside rises, do you start to sweat about your car overheating?
If your car starts overheating, it’s probably caused by one of the following:
Insufficient coolant – When the temperature warning light goes on, you may be low on coolant. After the car cools, check the coolant and fill to the proper level with a 50/50 mixture.
Dirty or rusty coolant – It’s time to flush the cooling system.
Hose deterioration – If your hoses are spongy, hard, or start to swell around the hose clamps, it’s time to replace them.
Sticky thermostat – If the engine takes too long to heat, it means your thermostat is stuck in the open position and needs to be replaced.
Worn fan belt – If your fan belt is cracked, fraying, or starts to squeal, it is probably slipping. Check for proper belt tension and replace worn belts.
Radiator sludge or rust – When your engine overheats and there is goo visible in the radiator neck, it’s time to clean or replace the radiator.
Coolant overflow – Loss of coolant through the overflow pipe usually means a leaky radiator cap. It’s a cool idea to keep your car’s radiator in good condition, especially in hot weather.
