Q: Car overheating and not starting

asked by on

It is possible that your head gasket may be leaking. When this happens, the pressure in the cylinders of your engine leaks into the cooling system, and causing it to overheat. Another symptom of a bad head gasket can be that the vehicle will not start due to lack of compression. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to run a full inspection of your overheating issue.
