An engine overheats for different reasons, but the most common is a lack of water because of extended use or leaks.

The engine temperature is controlled by water, which is cooled by the radiator.

During winter the radiator water also needs so-called anti-freeze, an additive that prevents the water temperature from dropping below freezing temperature when the outside temperature drops below zero – typically overnight when vehicles are parked outside.

This can cause serious and very expensive damage if the radiator and hoses crack or burst and it is therefore very important to make sure that coolant is checked at every possible interval.
