Your Coolant System and How Engine Overheating Occurs

Your engine works very hard and generates a lot of heat. The level of heat can reach up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Therefore, the engine’s coolant system needs to operate effectively.

The primary cause of engine overheating is the loss of coolant fluid due to a leak or an extremely low level. Engine overheating can happen gradually, or without any warning, depending on the size of the leak. The coolant system is also made up of radiator hoses, a water pump, fittings, clamps, and belts which all play a significant and vital role in helping the fluid circulate.

The radiator hoses specifically can become deficient over time which can cause an immediate rupture of coolant because of the pressure and intense heat.
