Q: Car overheating after oil change

asked by on

My car is overheating and I haven't been able to drive it. I recently had the oil changed. Could that have anything to do with the overheating?

There is very little chance that having the oil changed could be causing your car to overheat. Most likely, it is just a coincidence. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic. They can come to your location, diagnose your car’s overheating issue, and repair it.
