Engine Overheating

There's nothing worse than finding that your engine is overheating. This is a quick way to cause a lot of damage to your vehicle's engine and these types of repairs can get pretty involved and pretty costly. You have a gauge on your dashboard that shows you the approximate level of heat in your engine. When this level starts to creep up, we encourage you to either pull over or get to our service center at LaFontaine Ford of Birch Run as soon as you can. We can help you diagnose a problem that is occurring such as:

  • Simply put, your coolant levels might be too low and this is causing your vehicle to overheat. Topping off your fluids is an easy fix thankfully.
  • There are drive belts inside of your engine and if they have slipped off their tracks or are damaged, this can cause temperature concerns.
  • There could be a thermostat issue going on.
