My car overheated and then stopped running.
Overheating is never good for any vehicle. I compare it to a person having a heart attack. If the engine overheats enough, secondary damage, like blown head gaskets, can occur. There are many things that can cause a vehicle to overheat. Low coolant levels, clogged radiator, air pocket in the system, or a bad thermostat can all cause overheating. I suggest seeking help form a qualified mechanic to access how much the vehicle overheated, the cause of the overheating, and to see if there is any secondary damage. A mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, should be able to fully diagnose your overheating issue and let you know what repairs are needed to move forward.
