    Thanks for the vid, i have a question. My car only gets “HOT” on highways, round town it stays “Normal”. I have little to no AC Heat. I took the thermostat out and placed it in boiling water, it opened but just a bit, about 5mm. Is this normal or should i replace it, also i believe the water pump and radiator are new(ish) based on how clear they look.

    This is scary!

  5. Ryantravisaol says:

    haha, why is it scary?

  6. michaelheiland123654 says:

    because if the thermostart is close not working there will be no fluids going to your engine! And that will kill your engine right away! Let say the thermostart break at your home in the local repair shop is 5 miles aways! How will you take the car to the repair shop? When there is no fluids going to the engine you know? You can not do it b/c you will kill the engine , That is why is scary! Old cars are scary too!

    weird thing is that it’s not and old car and the thermostat was replaced twice with new ones, they’re cheap. The motor must be shot or something.
