Many times an engine overheating can be avoided. Since the engine’s coolant system relies solely on coolant fluid intake to reduce the temperature of the engine, a reduced level of the fluid is typically the culprit for an engine overheating.

The coolant should be checked periodically for maintaining a full level. It is vitally important that you never check the coolant level when the engine is hot. A recommended time is prior to operating your vehicle for the day or having it checked during regularly scheduled maintenance.

Additionally, the dashboard coolant warning indicator can help you with avoiding an engine overheating. Although it is not perfect, it can sometimes be the only warning you receive when a coolant leak occurs.

If you identify any reduction in the coolant level, schedule an appointment with Bluebonnet Motors soon to avoid engine overheating. Our service center is fully staffed with trained professionals to service your vehicle!
