When you maintain your car, it's important to care for your engine to prevent it from overheating. One of the main causes of engines getting too hot and breaking down is because of a lack of coolant. The coolant levels may be low if you haven't topped it off recently or if there's a leak present. Issues with the belts and hoses can cause the engine to overheat, but a mechanic can diagnose the issue to perform the necessary repairs.

Radiator issues can also cause the engine to overheat if the fan is broken, which will prevent the engine from staying cool in high temperatures. A broken water pump can also lead to the problem, as well as oil that gets too low as you spend time getting around in your vehicle. It's important for a mechanic to perform an inspection of the vehicle.
