Why Your Car Engine Overheats

One of the more frustrating situations is an overheated car engine. There are a number of situations that commonly cause overheated engines. At the top of the list is too little coolant in an engine. A related problem is improperly diluted coolant.

Another common cause of an overheated engine is an issue with the thermostat. When a thermostat begins to malfunction, the net effect is a disruption of the flow of coolant. A malfunctioning water pump also causes engine overheating. A water pump can become damaged or simply wear out of over time. Finally, a radiator itself may go on the fritz or become damaged, causing an overheated engine.
