If you’re facing an overheating car engine, there can be a number of underlying causes. There is also a prime strategy to employ to reduce significantly the odds of experiencing an overheating engine.

The most frequent cause of an overheating engine is low coolant. In addition, some coolant products requiring blending with H2O. When not properly blended, a coolant becomes ineffective. Another of the common reasons why an engine overheats is a faulty thermostat. An engine thermostat is a valve that controls the flow of vital coolant. When it malfunctions, coolant does not properly make its way through an engine, resulting in overheating.

As a precautionary measure, you should always keep additional coolant in your trunk. In addition, you need to obtain routine, regular service for your engine. The team at Kurt Johnson Auto Sales stands ready to provide you the service you need.
