A: Hello and thank you for contacting YourMech...

Hello and thank you for contacting YourMechanic. When the vehicle hit a stone, the radiator could have been hit and split open. This will cause the heat that you feel and the frequent shut downs due to the engine overheating. Open the hood to the engine compartment and check the radiator for any problems. If the radiator is intact and the coolant is full, then check the engine oil level. If the oil is not registering on the dipstick, then check the oil pan for any holes. The engine could be getting way too hot with no oil. If you need assistance in finding where the heat is coming from in the engine compartment, then seek out a professional, as one from YourMechanic to help you figure out your overheating issue.
