Q: Q: Vehicle overheating.

asked by on

My vehicle is running hot. What do I need to have repaired to fix this?

Hi there. This is a common problem. It is likely that a cooling system thermostat got stuck closed causing low flow through the cooling system and requires that it get replaced. It is also possible that there is a radiator restricting coolant flow inside it. This could be misdiagnosed as a thermostat issue. The recommendation I have is to have a mechanic inspect the overheating of your car.
