A key element of ensuring a long life for your engine is avoiding overheating. There are a number of more common ways in which vehicle engines overhead, including a defective radiator itself.

Beyond an issue with the radiator, a frequent cause of vehicle engine overheating is an issue with coolant. You may have too little coolant in the system. If you use a coolant that requires blending with water, you may have done that improperly. Another common cause of engine overheating is a damaged or worn thermostat. When that happens, the flow of coolant through your engine system is impaired or halted outright.

The best way you prevent cooling and overheating issues in your engine is to obtain timely service on your vehicle. The team at Valley Imports can assist you in this regard. Located in Fargo, you can schedule vehicle service at your convenience.
