My car has 150 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

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. If you desire that your vehicle’s overheating problem be diagnosed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request an engine overheating diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you.
