What You Should Do When Your Engine Overheats

Temperatures are on the rise, and that means more and more drivers are dealing with overheated engines. Overheating can do some serious damage to your vehicle and your wallet, so it's best to pull over the second you notice the temperature gauge climbing.

Don't panic if your vehicle starts to overheat. The majority of engines overheat because of low coolant levels. Wait until your vehicle cools down and check the coolant levels. If adding antifreeze doesn't solve the problem, you may have a leak or a clogged radiator, and it's best to consult a professional mechanic.

Preventative maintenance can stop an engine from overheating in the first place. Be sure to check your radiator cap, hoses, belts and coolant levels regularly.
