Typical Cooling System Components

Signs of Overheating
- The temperature gauge. If you notice your engine is running hotter than normal, it’s time for an inspection.
- Check to see if any green, orange, or yellow fluid is leaking from under your vehicle. If it is you are probably losing coolant and should get it inspected.
- Squealing noise when engine RPM increases. This could mean a loose belt which would cause poor circulation of the water pump.
