Our expert insights into thermostat replacement

Our expert insights into thermostat replacement

What does a thermostat do?

Your car's thermostat plays a vital role in your car’s cooling system. It’s a valve that regulates the amount of coolant that is recirculated back into the engine and how much is cooled via the radiator prior to being recirculated. This process is what keeps your vehicle’s engine functioning at the optimum temperature.

What are the signs of a faulty thermostat?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your thermostat:

  • If your ‘Check Engine’ warning light is on.
  • If the ‘Engine Temperature’ warning light illuminates.
  • Your temperature gauge reading is very high and your engine keeps overheating.

What happens when we do a thermostat replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Read your car’s ECU to see if there are any related fault codes.
  • Inspect the thermostat and the cooling system.
  • Replace the thermostat, if needed.
  • Close the cooling system and top-up your engine coolant.
  • Run the engine and test drive the car.
  • Make any final, necessary adjustments.
