Subaru Overheating Engine Maintenance Information at Carlsen Subaru serving San Francisco and Surrounding Areas

Common Auto Services at Carlsen Subaru: Overheating Engine Repair

Stop your Subaru from overheating by bringing it to Carlsen Subaru today

With today's modern, lightweight and efficient engine designs, an overheating engine is an engine that's damaging itself. There's just no getting around it: If your vehicle is smoking from the hood or tailpipe, or the engine temp light is on in the dash, every moment you continue to drive is putting your engine at risk. Modern advancements in engine design and cooling mean that engines are smaller, lighter and more efficient than ever, and rarely overheat even in extreme conditions. However, if a vehicle does overheat, that's a sign that something has gone very wrong with your engine - and could become a major maintenance project if it's not addressed immediately. If your Subaru has been overheating, don't take unnecessary chances! Stop by our service department soon for a permanent fix.

What is Happening when my Vehicle is Overheating?

Old-school iron engines could withstand a tremendous amount of heat without sustaining damage, so overheating was less of a concern. It was often possible to pull over, let the heat dissipate over time, then pour water into the radiator and carry on as normal. It's different with today's aluminium engines. Overheating engines can warp and even fuse components together, doing severe damage and even potentially destroying the engine outright! If your Subaru begins to overheat, blast the heater to draw heat out of the engine compartment, then pull over and turn the engine off as soon as it's safe to do so. Next, give us a call. We'll help you work with a towing company to have your car brought to our service center where we can fix your overheating issue once and for all.
