An engine overheating condition may develop due to a coolant flow issue. Our technicians tell us that debris may block the cylinder head coolant port at the primary thermostat housing. Removing the debris should correct this concern.

engine overheats when driving highway. Yellow warning light comes on above temp. gage and car slowly disengages, slowing down until at a standstill. Took to Dealership and they tried to diagnose problem, could not find anything wrong..told me to "keep an eye on it". If it happens again bring it back! Don't want to risk it and end up stranded. Need to return to Dealership.
