An engine overheating can not only ruin your day, but it can also put you in an unsafe situation, especially if it occurs at night time. Typically, an engine overheating occurs due to a decrease in the coolant which the engine needs to reduce the high level of heat that it’s exposed to during operation.
If the coolant level becomes too low due to a leak or deficient radiator hose, you will generally experience an engine overheating. Many times, there are warning signs of a leak, such as seeing fluid on your driveway or a spray of fluid underneath the hood of your vehicle. Coolant fluid can be identified by its green color. There is also a distinct odor that you may notice under the hood.
You should schedule an appointment with Boucher Nissan of Waukesha if you notice signs of a leak. Call our service center or use our online service scheduler!
