The thermostat is the “watchdog” of a car’s cooling system. It constantly monitors the temperature of the system and regulates coolant flow through the radiator. It operates many times each day during driving. A good thermostat speeds engine warm-up and regulates the engine’s operating temperature, which results in good fuel economy, lower emissions, better engine performance and longer engine life.
So, when replacing the thermostat, be sure to use a reliable Gates OE quality thermostat.
Gates thermostats provide a precise fit to help prevent leakage. Their temperature sensitive heat motor allows precise engine cooling, in order to guarantee optimum engine performance.
Gates markets several types of thermostats in order to provide the same design as specified by car manufacturers:
− The reverse poppet thermostat opens against the flow of coolant from the water pump. The coolant, under water pump pressure, is used to help the reverse poppet thermostat stay closed when cool to reduce leakage. This type is engineered with a self-cleaning, self-aligning stainless steel valve
− The offset thermostat with jiggle pin valves is equipped with a special valve in the flange, which allows trapped air in the system to escape and permits the venting of air from the system when filling it with coolant
− Gates also provides rubber seal thermostats, bypass thermostats etc., all with the same high quality
