Q: Car running hot

asked by on

My car is running hot.

A: Start by taking note of your coolant level....

Start by taking note of your coolant level. If low, you have a leak. You will need to pressure test the system to find the leaks if there are no obvious wet areas. If the level is normal, you may have a stuck thermostat, this is the part that regulates engine temperature. The problem could also be the water pump, or air trapped in the cooling system after a low coolant level situation. There is a high risk of burns when working with engine cooling systems and repairs should only be attempted by qualified mechanics. Have your overheating issue diagnosed and repaired by a certified mechanic from YourMechanic to get your vehicle back on the road safely.
