Do you have a vehicle that’s been overheating and you don’t know why? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
There’s nothing worse than having a vehicle that overheats on you because you want to have the ability to get into your vehicle and go the places that you want to go without having to worry about it overheating.
Thankfully, there are a wide variety of reasons why a vehicle overheats and in this post will break down some of those reasons so that you can know if you should fix your vehicle or sell it for cash.
Water pump failure
One of the most common reasons why a vehicle overheats is water pump failure and depending upon the make, model, or your of your vehicle, this part can be very expensive to replace.
The obvious job of your vehicle’s water pump is to circulate coolant from your radiator to the rest of your vehicle’s engine. If the water pump begins to go out, this means that your engine is no longer getting the coolant that it needs and it will overheat.
Another common reason why most vehicles overheat is due to a broken thermostat. Broken thermostats are very rare in today’s modern vehicles but, if you own a vehicle that’s over 10 years old, it’s very likely that the thermostat may be broken
Thankfully, thermostats are very affordable to replace and this repair job can be done in as little as 1 hour by an experienced mechanic.
Cracked or broken radiator
Last of all, but most important, one of the most common reasons why vehicles overheat is due to a cracked or broken radiator. When this happens, the radiator will obviously have to be replaced because there’s no point in trying to repair a cracked or broken radiator since this will only lead to further issues down the road.
