We’ll need to get to the root of your car’s overheating issue once you bring it to our facility, but we’re glad to recap for you a few of the common causes and cures. For instance, many drivers find their autos overheating when they’re sitting in traffic. This likely indicates failure of the radiator fan. This component pulls air across the radiator to keep it properly cooled. If the fan stops working, you’ll probably need to have it replaced. Another issue is a coolant leak. A loose, damaged, or aged hose can allow this heat absorbing fluid to escape. The radiator itself can corrode, causing the fluid to leak, too. If you have a leak, you’ll probably notice a sweet smelling greenish fluid dripping from your automobile. A related problem is rust. Over time, a rusting radiator develops holes that allow coolant to leak. Regular radiator service will help prevent radiator rust. Likewise, mineral deposits can build up. These particles can obstruct the flow of fluid, causing your vehicle to run hot. If deposits are impeding coolant flow, we’ll need to do a radiator flush (which is more extensive than a simple draining and replacement of coolant). Finally, a suspected radiator problem may not actually be the radiator. The overheating may be caused by a water pump gone bad. This component is necessary for circulating fluid through the radiator so that it can be cooled. Also, a failed thermostat is problematic because this part allows fluid to be released into the radiator.
