Simply, it is a valve. This valve controls engine temperature by opening and closing, to control the flow of water through the engine, in manner that matches the requirements of the engine at any given moment.
A controlled chemical reaction is used in place of electricity to actuate the thermostat.
If the thermostat does not open, it will cause the engine to overheat by not allowing cool water to flow around the engine.On the other hand, if the thermostat stays open, it will cause overcooling. Continued overheating and overcooling will cause significant damage to the engine. In the case of overcooling, it will inhibit the purification of exhaust gas.In addition, it will affect heater performance during the winter season.
