Hi Latorus. Thanks for contacting us tonight. Anytime a car overheats, it can cause a tremendous amount of damage to the engine and electrical components (especially if coolant spills under the hood and penetrates sensors or other electrical harnesses). In most cases, it’s recommended to dry off the coolant, especially around electrical connections before attempting to start again. However, I think it would be best to have a professional mechanic come to your location to complete an overheating inspection, so they can determine why the vehicle overheated before the car is started again, and further damage occurs.
