Schedule service to get your Subaru's overheating engine repaired in Beaverton, OR

Your Subaru is powered by an advanced BOXER® engine that's designed to withstand immense heat. However, if it gets too hot, it can warp and become severely damaged. If you've noticed that the needle in the temperature gauge is on or near the red, your Subaru will need to be serviced. Expert technicians like the ones at Carr Subaru have trained extensively with SUBARU BOXER® engines, so they will know exactly how to deal with the problem.

What Causes an Engine to Overheat?

There are many possible causes for an overheating engine. A likely culprit is the cooling system, which includes components like the radiator, thermostat, water pump, and various hoses. This system pumps coolant through the engine; the coolant absorbs excess heat and is then cooled down as it moves through the radiator. If there's a problem in this system--from a broken radiator fan to a coolant leak--it won't be able to cool your engine enough.

A blown head gasket is less common, but could also cause the engine to overheat. The head gasket makes sure that the oil and coolant stay separate in your engine; if it fails, they could combine and cause engine overheating.

Of course, there is a chance that the engine couldn't be overheating at all. From time to time, a temperature gauge or sensor might be giving a false positive. However, since an engine can quickly be rendered unusable by excess heat, it's best to treat every indication of overheating as serious.

What Should I Do If My Engine Overheats?

If an engine overheats for too long, the engine block can become irreparably damaged. If you notice your engine beginning to overheat, the best thing to do is to pull over as soon as it's safe to do so. Turn off your engine, then call for a tow truck to take your vehicle to an authorized Subaru service center.
