Get the Facts about Engine Overheating

Engine overheating can happen at any time of day or during any season of the year. As a vehicle owner, it’s important to know why auto engines overheat and also the steps that can be taken to prevent this disruptive event from happening to you.

Automotive engines are designed with systems to remove the heat generated by the internal combustion and friction that's constantly taking place. These systems include pumps and coolant lines as well as fans that serve to disperse the heat. All these parts must be in good working order for proper engine cooling to occur. Your vehicle’s manual should also contain information on the right type of coolant and optimum coolant levels for your specific make and model.
