The thermostat is responsible for regulating the engine's temperature.
While many drivers know the potential dangers of an overheating engine, some aren’t aware that an engine that’s too cold will not work properly as well. It’s the thermostat’s role to control the temperature to keep the engine working as it should and promote optimum driving.
However, just as other vehicle components are, your thermostat isn’t exempted from wear and tear. Due to aging or corrosion, thermostats can get stuck in a closed or open position. When stuck in closed, you may encounter overheating. The polar opposite of overheating—overcooling—is what may happen when they get stuck in an open position.
At Saul’s Autotek, we have ASE-certified mechanics who can inspect your thermostat and diagnose any issues. We’ll determine if it can still be repaired and inform you if you already need to invest in a replacement. With state-of-the-art equipment and over three decades of experience, we guarantee that we can resolve any thermostat issues.
Signs Your Thermostat Needs a Replacement
1. Overheating and Over-cooling
2. Coolant Leak
3. Strange Sounds and Erratic Temperature Changes
Strange sounds are also a sign of a bad thermostat. If you hear a knocking, boiling, or rumbling noise coming from the radiator, it’s a sure sign that there’s something wrong with your thermostat.
The thermostat affects the air that goes through your vehicle’s vents. So, be wary of erratic changes in the air temperature that flows in your vehicle, as they indicate thermostat issues.
