Signs of Cooling System Failure

Making sure that your car's cooling system is properly maintained is vital to the longevity of your engine. If you begin to notice signs that your cooling system may be starting to fail, it is important to have it serviced as soon as possible to prevent serious damage to your car’s engine. Below are some signs of cooling system problems and what could potentially be causing them:

  • Coolant Warning Light Comes On - Due to prolonged use, there is possibly a hole in the radiator caused from corrosion or road debris.
  • Temperature Gauge Running Higher or Lower Than Normal - If you notice your temperature gauge is too hot or too cold, you could have a radiator or heater hose failure.
  • Heater Malfunction - If you notice that the heater is not working properly, it could be a sign that your thermostat has failed and needs to be fixed or replaced.
  • Leaking Coolant - If you notice coolant leaking from your engine, then it may be a sign that the thermostat or fan is no longer working properly and is unable to make the proper temperature adjustments.
