The thermostat is the “watchdog” of a car’s cooling system. It constantly monitors the temperature of the system and regulates coolant flow through the radiator. It operates many times each day during driving. A good thermostat speeds engine warm-up and regulates the engine’s operating temperature, which results in good fuel economy, lower emissions, better engine performance and longer engine life.
