Discover the Common Causes of Vehicle Overheating

Few automotive problems can be more troubling an overheating engine, but this issue can usually be headed off by implementing a few preventive measure. One of these measures is visiting the team at DCH Tustin Acura for periodic check-ups of your vehicle, and additional steps are listed below.

It’s important to keep tabs on your vehicle’s fluid levels because low coolant is a leading cause of overheating. This is especially true in the summertime when warm temperatures can speed up coolant evaporation and add to the heat level that's already being generated by the engine itself.

Failure of key components that are responsible for cycling coolant throughout the engine can also cause a vehicle to overheat. These components include the radiator, the radiator fan, the coolant hoses and pumps and the thermostat that monitors the engine’s internal temperature.
