Why do Some Vehicles Overheat?

When you are out driving in Nederland, it's a sickening feeling to realize that your car is overheating. Why is this happening? Cars can overheat for a number of reasons. If there is not enough coolant, the cooling system cannot work correctly. Also, if your water pump malfunctions, the engine will overheat and stop working quickly. Hoses and fan belts can malfunction causing your car to overheat as well.

The best way that you can keep your car from overheating is to maintain the cooling system properly. Make sure that there is sufficient coolant at the proper mix ratio in the vehicle. Get a coolant flush and refill according to manufacturer recommendations. Make sure that belts and hoses are in good condition.
