Nissan Driving

A modern vehicle today is quite powerful and can create a significant amount of energy. If this energy is not adequately controlled, the engine can quickly turn quite hot and cause damage to your vehicle. Fortunately, you can keep your vehicle cool through the cooling system and other parts of the car. If you notice that your car is overheating, it could be due to a variety of issues.

Low Coolant

Coolant is an important fluid that runs through your vehicle and is designed to keep your vehicle at a good temperature. While coolant should last for several years, it does need to be replaced and replenished from time to time. Additionally, there is a chance that your vehicle could be leaking coolant. If your coolant is low or old, it may not provide the protection needed, and your car could overheat.

Radiator Malfunction

The radiator of your vehicle is designed to help keep your vehicle cool. Along with the fans under the hood, it is designed to help keep your engine cool. If the radiator breaks or becomes inefficient, it will not keep your vehicle cool, and it will quickly start to overheat.

Thermostat Valve Fails

A small but very important part of your vehicle's cooling system is the thermostat valve. This valve can test your engine's temperature and then allow coolant to enter the engine to cool it down. However, if the thermostat is not working correctly, it will not be able to signal the needed release of coolant. This could then increase temperature, and your car could soon overheat.

If you notice that your car is overheating, it is important to check out as soon as possible. The Pinnacle Nissan team can provide a complete evaluation of your vehicle to determine why it is overheating. Based on this assessment, the team at this service center can make the repairs necessary to ensure your vehicle operates at a safe temperature and will protect your vehicle.
