An engine is designed with a built-in cooling system that consists of thermometers to monitor temperature, hoses and pumps to circulate coolant and a radiator to disperse heat from the engine. If any of these mechanical parts fails to function properly, overheating will generally occur almost immediately.

Additional factors that can lead to overheating are low coolant levels and the use of improperly blended coolants or coolant products that aren’t designed for your vehicle or the weather conditions in your area.
