Common causes for overheating in cars

Engine overheating could be the possible consequences of several problems. Cars need to run at their optimal temperature, any defect with the following components can cause the temperature to rise beyond the normal level, leading to overheating and damage to your engine. Here are some of the common causes of overheating and how to deal with them.

  • Low Coolant level – This is the most obvious issue that plagues most overheating cars. When the low coolant level warning light comes on, you should stop driving. Pull over to the side as soon as possible and shut off the engine to prevent any additional damage.

  • Wrong coolant used – using the wrong coolant can impair the performance of the special additive packages; this can result in increased corrosion to the radiator.

  • Blockage to coolant circulation – When your radiator is clogged, not working as efficiently as intended, or has simply gone bad, not enough cooling is taking place inside the engine. A coolant flush resolves this problem – it’s basically a blood transfusion for your cooling system. 

  • Low Engine Oil level – If you don’t have enough oil in your engine or if the oil hasn’t been changed in a while, then it won’t do as good a job of lubricating the engine’s components. This will cause the engine to heat up more and eventually overheat. Getting your oil changed with fresh oil will often take care of the problem.

  • Damaged head gasket – The two main functions of a head gasket are channeling the coolant for optimal engine cooling and creating a seal between the engine block and head. a damaged head gasket could cause oil and coolant to mix and result in an overheated engine. If a faulty head gasket is not detected early, a required repair of the engine block, the cylinder head, or a complete engine replacement could be required.

BONUS TIP : Pertua Oil & Metal treatment DuraSyn Technology has two actions, the anti-friction action and the anti-oxidation action. The anti-friction prevents the abrasive metal to metal contact of the parts at the inter-metallic junction level by polarizing the interfacing metal parts, making them repel each other. Thus, friction is nullified. With no friction, one can expect direly less heat from the engine which entails fewer chances of overheating.
