Common Reasons a Car May Overheat

If your car's engine is overheating, there are many explanations for why this may be happening. First, your coolant levels may have dropped naturally just by using your car. It is also possible that a coolant leak is causing fluid levels to drop to dangerous levels. A clogged radiator may also explain the overheating.

Signs of overheating may include the temperature gauge on your dashboard climbing higher. You may also notice that there is smoke coming from the engine when you drive the vehicle. If left unchecked, the engine could catch on fire, and it also possible for the engine to seize. This may happen as rising temperatures cause oil and other lubricants to evaporate.

If your vehicle's engine is too hot, bring it in for service immediately. A technician at Dublin Toyota may be able to diagnose and fix the problem in a timely manner.
