Car overheats quickly

If your vehicle overheats quickly My Auto Shop can get it sorted with an Engine Inspection. Simply leave as many details about the issue as you can and we will contact local MTA approved mechanics that are qualified to fix the underlying issue. We'll email you quotes for an inspection within 2 working days, and where possible provide an indication as to the likely underlying issue(s) and cost to fix. You can book directly on the My Auto Shop platform in minutes.

How a Engine Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle's engine using the information or symptoms you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Depending on the symptoms the mechanic will take a good look at your vehicles:
- Drive & timing belts (cambelt, serpentine belts);
- Camshaft & crankshaft;
- Spark plugs; or
- Oil pan.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

When your vehicle overheats quickly its often as a result of a:

  • Low Coolant Level
  • Failed Thermostat
  • Failed Water Pump
  • Failed Radiator Fan Motor
  • Failed Radiator Fan Relay

Popular services linked to a Engine Inspection:

Thermostat Replacement

The thermostat helps to do a whole bunch of important things in your cooling system. Think of it as a halfback, it’s small, manages a whole bunch of components and can cause headaches if it stops doing its job.

Oil Pan/ Sump Gasket Replacement

Have you ever cleaned your garage, only to find pesky oil stains on your floor the next day? This is usually the fault of the gaskets in your engine. Your sump holds nearly all of your oil in the engine when your car is off. If your sump gasket is playing up then more often than not, it can lead to annoying leaks that can sometimes lead to more issues.

Fuel Pump Replacement

In order to get fuel from your fuel tank to your engine, your car uses a fuel pump. The fuel pump is either mechanical - run off the engine or electric - run off electricity. Some fuel pumps are located inside or very close to the tank. Others are located in the engine bay or attached to the engine itself. Without the fuel pump, your car won’t work.

Oil Cooler Line Replacement

Your oil cooler lines carry oil from the engine to the cooler and from the cooler to the sump. You don’t want these to leak or split, that can lead to oil spilling across the road. Oil outside the car is never a good thing so if one starts leaking, get it replaced as soon as possible.
