Overheating Car Engine

Overheated engines can be quite a serious problem – not to mention it can be quite frightening to suddenly see steam billowing out from under the hood, the temperature gauge illuminated and strange sounds coming from the engine. Overheating can cause damage to the cooling system, radiator, piston rings, water pump, as well as the transmission and motor itself – and it’s not something that can wait.

Our repair technicians know the different reasons for overheating – coolant leak, slipped fan belt, radiator clogged, thermostat malfunction or failed head gasket, among others – and can tackle this and other vehicle issues proficiently and reasonably at one of our convenient car repair locations.

If your car’s engine is stalling or overheating, don’t try to guess what the problem is yourself. Let us examine your vehicle, identify the problem, repair your car and get you back on your way again.


Motor Tune-Ups

Repairing your vehicle can cost a lot. On the other hand, if you properly maintain your vehicle it will cost small amounts of money on a regular basis. You will save money by preventing trouble before it happens with regular engine tune-ups. At Hogans we help to keep your vehicle running at its best and keep it running longer.

We make engine tune-ups as simple as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Check that the wiring looks solid and that there are no loose connections

  2. Check air, fuel and oil filters to help prevent overheating, stalling and unnecessary engine wear

  3. Check spark plugs to inspect for excessive wear and proper gapping

In some cases it takes a mechanical review to find that certain auto parts are wearing out. Neglecting to do this can lead to expensive and inconvenient problems down the road. Tune-ups ensure that minor issues are fixed before they become major problems requiring costly repairs. Our skilled technicians will thoroughly inspect your vehicle, including the following:

  • exhaust system

  • brakes

  • suspension

  • emission system

  • ignition timing

  • battery and charging system

  • spark plugs

  • belts and hoses

  • lights and turn signals

  • filters

  • radiator and coolant

  • tires (pressure and tread depth)

  • chassis, ball joints, control arms and constant-velocity (CV) boots

  • visual inspection of engine

The old saying is true: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. You can prevent car trouble and extend the life of your vehicle with an engine tune up at Hogans Automotive Services.
