The Cause and Prevention of Engine Overheating

When you are driving in Perry, GA, you don't want to have the experience of your engine overheating. This can leave you stranded, and it can cause serious damage to your vehicle. Jeff Smith Kia wants you to be informed about why your engine might overheat and about the ways overheating can be prevented.

Your engine can overheat for several reasons. One of the major reasons is a lack of engine coolant. Poor engine coolant can also lead to overheating. Several parts on the car can malfunction leading to overheating. These part failures include the water pump, radiator and thermostat failure. A blocked radiator hose can lead to a problem.

One of the ways that you can help to prevent engine overheating is to have your vehicle's coolant system serviced on a regular basis. Always follow your vehicle manufacturer's recommended service schedule for draining and refilling the coolant. Make sure that coolant hoses are replaced as necessary.
