Definition of Thermostat:
is a component, that serves for keeping a temperature within a range, that acceptable for operation. With a liquid cooling, the temperature is controlled by a thermostat
. Before reaching the operational temperature, the thermostat
is closed, so that the water only passes the engine
and the cooling water pump. When the thermostat
opens at about 185°F (85°C), the radiator is added to the cooling loop and the actual cooling function starts.
