Engine overheating can be caused by low coolant level, trapped air in the coolant system, inadequate drive belt tension on the water pump, a broken water pump impeller, a faulty radiator cap, a partially plugged radiator, collapsed radiator hoses, a faulty thermostat, inoperable cooling fans, a bad fan switch, and other causes external to the cooling system such as engine running conditions and even under inflated tires or dragging brakes.
