It's Important to Service Your Cooling System

At Capitol Chevrolet Cadillac we want you to know what to do if your car overheats while driving. The first action you should take if you think your car might be overheating is to stop the vehicle and look underneath to see if there is a leak. It is also good to know what parts of the coolant system to look at in the event of engine overheating.

  • Radiator
  • Coolant hoses
  • Radiator cap
These are the parts to look at visually when discovering your engine is overheating. There are parts that fail that are less obvious which are:
  • Thermostat
  • Coolant temp sensor
  • Water pump

There are many ways your car can overheat and that's why it's smart to bring your vehicle to Salem when you need service. We also recommend you ask about having a coolant flush performed by our trained technicians.
