The Reasons Your Engine May be Overheating

When your car engine overheats, it could be from one of a number of issues under the hood. Here is what you should be looking for if the engine is overheating.

It could be as simple as the radiator cap missing, not screwed on tight enough, or not pressure-rated for the car. Once the car cools off, take a look in the radiator; low coolant levels will certainly cause the engine to overheat. Look to see if there is any coolant on the exterior of the radiator hoses. This could be a sign of a blown hose or the hose clamps may have corroded and won't secure the end to the engine block.

See if there are any signs of coolant under the water pump. This may be the result of the bearing seizing inside the pump. Schedule your cooling system checkup at Pitre Kia in Albuquerque, NM today to avoid this issue in the future.
