It’s Summer – Is Your Engine Overheating?

As temperatures continue to climb this summer to record highs across the country, drivers have to be extra vigilant in the fight against engine overheating. There are many contributing factors to engine overheating such as:

  • A malfunctioning radiator
  • Damaged hoses
  • Faulty water pump
  • Unseen evaporation of engine coolant or water
  • Sensors
  • Several days of consecutive 100-degree weather

Luckily, many drivers learn these issues can be overcome without having to deal with a heavy repair bill… especially when compared to the cost of repairing or replacing an engine due to catastrophic failure.  Something as straight forward as checking the level of coolant in your vehicle can make a big difference – and it’s something that can easily be done in your own driveway!
