Q: Heating up and reservoir overflowing

asked by on

My truck is overheating and it's overflowing cooling liquid from reservoir

My car has 33000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This suggests you may have a cooling system problem. This can be caused by a faulty thermostat, a bad cooling fan relay, a clogged radiator, or potentially even a blown head gasket. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose the overheating issue firsthand for an accurate repair.
