Diagnosing an Overheating Engine

An engine tends to overheat when you drive in hot weather. Therefore, if you are driving your vehicle during the summer, keep a close eye on your coolant and other fluid levels. In some cases, it may be possible to keep your engine cool by pouring water inside of it.

However, this is only a short-term fix, and you should have the car serviced as soon as possible. Other possible reasons why an engine is overheating include a low coolant level or a coolant leak. Leaks may be caused by broken gaskets or other broken parts.

Generally, a leak can be spotted by looking for fluid under the vehicle. Taking a vehicle to our service center at Bob Ridings Westown Ford of Jacksonville make it possible to find out why the engine is running too hot. By fixing the issue promptly, your car will be safer to drive while maximizing its useful life.
