Car Engine Overheating Service Information in Salt Lake City, UT

An overheating engine is bad news. The heat from a combustion engine is hot enough to melt and warp metal if left unmitigated--and this includes the metal of the engine. If a temperature warning light comes on or if you've noticed the needle of the temperature gauge move dangerously close to the red, we recommend pulling over as soon as it's safe to do so. Then, call for a tow and have your Subaru brought to an authorized service center. Our technicians will be glad to inspect the engine and see what's behind the overheating. They can then let you know what the repairs will look like.

What Causes Engines To Overheat?

As we mentioned before, combustion engines are hot, and need something to keep them from retaining the heat. That's where the cooling system comes in. The thermostat allows coolant (a mixture of water and antifreeze) to enter the engine, where it's propelled through channels by the water pump. In these channels, the coolant picks up excess heat. Once it's absorbed the heat, it moves to the radiator, where it's cooled down. Then, it begins the cycle again.

A failure in any part of the cooling system, from a damaged radiator fan to a faulty thermostat to a coolant leak, can lead to the engine overheating. Since there are so many causes, it's best to have the experts take a look at things.
