Is the engine leaking coolant or is it running to cold because the thermostat is stuck open or closed? Pentagon Motorist Centre in Chatham in Medway is the local garage that can deal with all your vehicles overheating or thermostat and coolant problems.
The thermostat is closed when the engine is cold so the engine warms the cold coolant quickly. When the coolant reaches about 82° C the thermostat opens so the coolant can flow through to the top of the radiator. The thermostat then helps to maintain the correct running temperature so that it can run efficiently.
The temperature of the engine’s coolant should be allowed to completely cool down before one attempts to inspect or replace leaking or damaged coolant components. Exposure to the extremely hot water will cause serious bodily injury. Hot coolant should be handled with care because it is extremely poisonous.
