When you select genuine OEM part, you can rely on the high quality and effectiveness of the product without having to guess if it will work with your vehicle. Protecting your investment is important and choosing the right parts can be challenging. So don’t waste another minute searching for a replacement that might work; stick with what you know and get the same parts and accessories the dealership uses.
A car thermostat regulates the flow of coolant through the engine and is an incredibly important player in the operation of your vehicle’s engine. You may hear the phrase “the thermostat was stuck open or closed.” When the engine has been sitting for a while and is not warm, the thermostat will be closed. Once the engine is running and reaches a certain operating temperature, a sensor inside the thermostat will cause it to open, allowing coolant to flow to and from the radiator, decreasing the temperature so it can be recirculated through the engine again. This constant flow (in conjunction with several other cooling system components) is what keeps your vehicle’s engine functioning at the optimum temperature.
