What to Do When Your Land Rover Overheats

Land Rovers’ cooling systems are fitted with various sensors and a series of electric fans to keep the engine from overheating. However, overheating can still occur with poor maintenance. When your Land Rover’s engine overheats, you should be prepared to take the following steps.

While it may seem illogical at first, it is effective at moving heat away from the engine and into the passenger compartment instead. This can stop the overheating altogether in some cases.
