My engine suddenly started sounding different and it started overheating. What would cause this?
Sitting at a stop light the engine kind of skipped or bumped twice and started sounding
louder and strange. The thermometer icon came on and turned red.
Low coolant,or lost coolant,first thing to check,if no leaks are found,could be bad water pump or thermostat issue.
Correct and do not continue to drive it until you repair it. Overheating your car will damage your heads/engine.
