What is a Thermostat?

You’re probably thinking it’s a thermostat for your car, right? Well, you’re exactly right. A thermostat is a part of your car’s cooling system, and it’s actually a valve.

The thermostat helps keep your engine at the right temperature. When you first fire up your car, and the engine is cold, the valve stays closed, blocking the coolant from circulating to the radiator, and trapping in the heat, so the engine can get up to temperature. Once the car is up and running and toastier than a summer day, the valve opens up, allowing the coolant to flow to the radiator and cool things down.

Overheating

Your engine is powerful, and surrounded by gas, oil, and water. Overheating isn’t good. Hopefully this isn’t new information to you. Overheating often comes as a result of a faulty thermostat, so that could be the culprit.

How urgent is a Thermostat replacement?

The thermostat helps keep your engine from overheating. If you don’t replace a faulty thermostat, your engine might overheat. If your engine overheats, it may suffer serious damage. Surely, you don’t need to be told how bad that is or how much it might cost beyond fixing your thermostat.
