Issues That Can Cause Your Engine to Overheat

If your engine majorly overheats, you may notice that there is steam or smoke coming from your engine bay. You may not have these visible issues, but the temperature gauge on your dashboard may show an overheating concern. This can occur for a number of reasons. While regular maintenance of your vehicle can help prevent overheating issues, you can't always prevent general issues that come from wear and tear.

The cooling system of your vehicle is designed to keep everything running at the right temperature. If you have a leak in this system, it could cause air to become trapped in the system. As this air travels to the top of the cooling tank, it can become 'locked' in there. Your vehicle will then overheat.

It's also important to make sure your coolant levels are at an adequate level. You can top these fluids off when needed.
