An overheating car can leave you stranded on the side of the road without a form of transportation. Fortunately, All Ways Towing and Transport offers 24/7 towing services, and can even tow your car to our AAA-certified automotive repair shop. To learn more about what causes an overheating car, read this article.
Cooling System Troubles
Low coolant is the most common cause of an overheating car, especially during the summer months when coolant is prone to evaporating through the overflow reservoir. Another cause can be trapped air in the cooling system, but this usually only occurs if the car overheats shortly after a cooling system repair. A broken radiator cooling fan can also cause a car to overheat. If you have a high-mileage car, it’s also possible that the radiator core has become clogged or the radiator cap is broken.
A Fluid Leak Under the Hood
As a radiator or heater core becomes old, it can develop pinholes that cause coolant leaks under pressure. The radiator and heater hoses can also become weak under pressure, which can result in a hose rupture and consequently a fluid leak. A failing water pump may also start to leak cooling fluid from the bottom. If you hear a high-pitched squeak coming from under the hood, the water pump is failing and needs to be fixed as soon as possible. The freeze plug in your car’s engine block may even fail, which allows coolant to escape.
Bad Thermostat or Head Gasket
If your thermostat fails, it will probably fail to open, which traps the antifreeze. This prevents it from circulating through the radiator and keeping the engine cool. Though it is unlikely, seeing plumes of white smoke coming from your exhaust tells you that your car is overheating because of a blown head gasket.
A variety of car troubles can cause a car to overheat. If your car overheats, take it to All Ways Towing and Transport, where our technicians are ASE-certified. Call us at (877) 898-6993 if you need towing services in Hayward, CA or nearby areas. Visit our website for more information.

California has numerous parking and towing laws that are unique from other state’s laws. At All Ways Towing and Transport, we recommend familiarizing yourself with some of the most important towing laws before you park your car or call to have a car towed from your property. For more information about other important California towing laws, read on.
Private Property Towing Laws
California towing law says that a property owner may legally tow a vehicle located on his property without first asking the permission of the police or state government. The exception to this law, however, is if the vehicle is not properly functioning. If a vehicle is on someone else’s private property and it has no engine, wheels, or other crucial parts that are required to drive it, the property owner must wait 24 hours before notifying the police of his intent to tow the vehicle.
There are a number of untrustworthy towing companies out there that will try to charge you more than one day’s worth of storage fees if your car stays in the lot overnight. But according to California law, towing companies cannot charge more than one day’s worth of storage fees is the vehicle is picked up within a 24-hour time frame. If a towing company tries you charge you more, report them to the police.
It is illegal for a towing company to tow a vehicle from a public area if there is not a visible sign in the area that measures at least 17 inches by 22 inches. If there is no sign or the sign is smaller than the legally required minimum, the company who towed your car could be engaging in what’s called “predatory towing,” which is illegal.
