Tips to Prevent Your Car From Overheating

One of the most common reasons why cars breakdown is overheating. When a vehicle gets too hot, it can cause severe damage to the engine. Here are some engine cooling and radiator service tips to help keep your car from overheating.

Check to make sure your radiator has enough coolant. Anti-freeze is a common coolant mechanics use to keep engine heads from warping due to overheating. If you are low on coolant, it is best to refill it with a 50/50 combination of water and anti-freeze. Also, check underneath your car to see if the coolant is leaking. If it is, the radiator or radiator hoses may have a small leak.

If your car is leaking coolant, it is best to have it inspected by a certified professional at Kings Mazda. One of our technicians will inspect the hoses, radiator, fan belts, sensors and check to see if the thermostat is functioning properly.
