Overheating Causal Factors
Damaged Fan Clutch
Your heavy-duty truck’s fan clutch is responsible for controlling the airflow in your coolant system. The clutch itself allows the fan to engage and disengage as necessary, which allows your engine to maintain an adequate operating temperature. If your fan clutch is unable to engage when required, your truck will likely overheat. A fan that doesn’t engage does not pull any air through your radiator, which in turn, does not allow for radiant heat to be dispersed. Fortunately, we here at Lanier Truck Repair are fan clutch experts.
One of the most common causes of an overheating engine is a plugged radiator. This generally happens when your coolant isn’t flushed and replaced on a regular basis. Other times, rust and other debris can build up in your radiator, which prevents the flow of coolant throughout the entire system. Fortunately, we here at Lanier Truck Repair are more than capable of repairing even the most damaged radiators. Whether it’s plugged in or needs to be replaced entirely, we’ve got your back.
