Maintaining Your Car’s Thermostat
A thermostat is a component that sits between the engine and the radiator. Its primary function is to regulate engine temperature.
A thermostat works by opening and closing to control coolant flow depending on the engine’s temperature. When the engine is cold, a thermostat stays closed. But when the engine coolant rises in temperature—typically around 180 F/82 C—the thermostat opens, allowing the coolant to pass through the radiator.
A thermostat opens or closes depending on the state of the coolant. Having to adapt to changes in temperature could damage it, however. This could result in major engine damage if left unchecked.
There are several signs to watch out for to see if your thermostat is no longer functioning properly. If the temperature gauge has reached abnormal levels and the engine is overheating, for instance, it could be a sign that your thermostat needs replacement. On the flipside, if your car fails to heat up properly, there’s a possibility that the thermostat is stuck in its open position.
