Q: Car runs perfect except for overheating.

asked by on

Car runs too warm. All of the parts have been replaced, and the car runs perfect, except for the overheating problem.

There are a lot of problems that can cause overheating. Anything from a stuck thermostat to a leaking head gasket could be the issue. I suggest you have your vehicle diagnosed by a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic. They will be able to diagnose your overheating issue so your car runs great all the time.
