Your Car's Heater & Thermostat: A Hot Topic

An article on car heaters and their function.

But suppose you find you have no heat one day...what to do? Look to determine if the engine coolant is at an adequate level. If that's ok, determine if the temp gauge is reporting an under ideal temp. If it is..or if it seems to take forever to get up to running temp, the culprit is the thermostat.

Thermostats can be tricky beasts. They do wear out over time and yours may have just given up the ghost. They are designed in such a way as to open or close in response to varying levels of heat. As the engine grows hot the thermostat will open allowing water to pass on to the radiator for cooling. The thermostat is constantly adjusting to the heat and eventually wears out..usually in the open position...thus, allowing water to pass through all the time...and your engine has a hard time reaching full operating temperature without this "water brake" working. And this is bad for more than one reason, not only do you have low heat coming in to the vehicle interior, but the engine itself will not run at full efficiency unless it reaches proper operating temperature. This can result in poor fuel mileage. And lets not forget another primary reason we need that heat in the vehicle, visibility. That defroster can break the ice of winter, and clear the fog from the glass surfaces in your car.

A thermostat, is inexpensive, usually simple to replace and on most vehicles the job can be done in about 30 minutes with common hand tools. In preparing for winter driving...maybe you should pop in a new thermostat. You may discover that your car is really a rather toasty place to be.
