While spending time driving in high temperatures and warm climates, it can be easy for your car to overheat if it hasn't received the maintenance and care it needs to withstand the elements. There are several reasons why an engine is prone to overheat, which can leave you stranded.

The main cause of engine overheating is if you haven't added more coolant to the vehicle in the last few months. A coolant leak can also cause too much of the coolant to drain out. There may even be a lack of oil present under the hood, which prevents the parts of the engine from having enough lubrication.

Another common cause of this issue is if there's a thermostat failure or if the heater core becomes clogged and plugged up. It's important to hire a technician to determine the cause of the problem to ensure you can get back on the road.
