Q: Overheating

asked by on

hello, why when the car is in a blockade for a long time it begins to overheat?

Most vehicles will overheat when the cooling system is malfunctioning. This can be due to a stuck closed thermostat, leaking coolant and system is low on coolant. The engine may have leaking gaskets. Since the vehicle is not know we are not able to give specifics on needed repairs. I would recommend having a mobile mechanic like one from YourMechanic come to you and check the cause of the engine overheating.
