1 Answer


It is called coolant that flows threw the engine to keep the engine from overheating. The engine temperature is controlled by a thermostat that could be stuck closed not allowing the coolant to flow the cooling system. Other causes would be low on coolant, a bad water pump, a plugged radiator, or a bad head or head gasket, which usually happens once a engine overheats.
