When internal combustion engines work, they generate a lot of heat. This heat is removed by the coolant through the radiator. Also the engine oil helps to circulate and thereby indirectly remove the heat.
When there is a problem with the cooling system, the result is most likely an overheating engine.
Engine overheat if not caught early can result to catastrophic engine failure.
The ability to quickly sense that the engine is overheating or is about to overheat can potentially save the car owner spending on engine repairs or replacement.
Below are common causes of Overheating:
° Faulty radiator° Faulty water pump° Bad drive belt for water pump° Blocked exhaust° Excessively running lean° Bad thermostat&de..
