Engine Overheating Diagnosis and Repair
There are many different causes of an engine overheating. Whatever the cause, the engine is overheating because something inside the cooling system is preventing transportation or release of heat. Here are a few common causes for your vehicle overheating:
Water pump failure
The water pump, as the name implies, helps pump and propel engine coolant throughout your cooling system. Any issue associated with the water pump can lead to an overheating engine. Common water pump problems include leaks, shifting of the pump shaft, or eroded impeller vanes.
If your car is overheating, ignoring the problem can cause your engine or cooling system to fail. Don’t ever think that the engine will be okay if your temperature gauge spikes.
