Keeping a close eye on your car's temperature gauge is of critical importance in Brisbane's piping hot summer. Today, the team at Stouch Auto and Mechanical are eager to share with you our top 4 reasons that cause car engine overheating.
1. Faulty Radiator
Radiator failure may come as a consequence of leakages or clogs from auxiliary parts. This impedes the ability of heat to be pulled away from the engine bay, causing inefficient cooling and car engine overheating.
2. Faulty Thermostat
Thermostats ensure coolant is regulated and free flowing to your car's radiator. Should your thermostat be stuck in the closed position, coolant access is hampered meaning overheating in your car's engine bay. Seek the advice of a mobile mechanic immediately.
3. Leaking system
Leakages from existing components are a huge contributing factor towards car overheating. Leaks may be apparent in hoses, water pumps, thermostats, head gaskets, freeze plugs and many more. Leakages are a tell tale sign that you need to contact your mobile mechanic immediately to arrange an inspection - doing so sooner rather than later may save you more damage not just to the engine, but to your hip pocket too!
4. Loose or broken belts
Belts ensure smooth and consistent coolant flow to the radiator which in turn cools your engine. Loosened or broken belts will affect cooling effectiveness.
