Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Important rule for thermostat H your ear's engine is run- ning hot, or if your automatic transmission seems to be slug- gish have your thermostat checked. Thermostats open and close to regulate coolant flowing through the cooling system to maintain proper engine tempera tures. Functioning correctly, thermostats should open to allow coolant to pass through the system when the coolant reaches the exact tem- perature level for which its en- gine was designed. If the thermostat opens be- fore the coolant reaches this desirable temperature, the en- gine will run too cool. This will result in excess wear on mov- ing parts, accumulations of sludge in the crank case and decreased fuel economy, among other things. However, should the thermo- stat fail to open when the proper temperature is reached, the engine is subjected to over- heating. With the thermostat dosed, coolant flow is blocked off from the radiator. Until the stat opens, the coolant be- comes hotter and hotter. When this occurs, the engine will deteriorate rapidly as metal parts are tortured by extreme temperatures. In addition to costly dam- age done to metal parts, over- heating also results in loss of engine power, increased oil consumption, abnormal com- bustion and pre-ignition. And, because transmission fluid is cooled in the radiator, transmission failure becomes a serious possibility. A great per- centage of all automatic trans- mission failures can be traced to engines running too hot! It's a good idea to have your car's cooling system tuned up before cold weather sets in. In addition to inspecting the operation of the thermostat, careful attention should be paid to radiator and heat- er hoses, hose clamps, fan belts, and safety pressure caps. Should they fail, any of these key cooling components can lead to serious and costly, en- gine troubles. Crack on unrterslrfe, en.
