Volvo Thermostat replacement
Why Do Volvo Thermostats Need To Be Replaced?
A car's thermostat is part of the Volvo's cooling system, the thermostat regulates the engine’s operating temperature and flow of coolant circulation through the engine.
It keeps your Volvo's engine at the optimum running temperature so the engine has time to warm up on startup and also cool down when it is hot.
The thermostat is a valve that opens and closes to allow or deny coolant flow. When a thermostat fails it can get stuck open or closed. This can cause the engine to overheat.
Volvo thermostats can fail due to a defect, old age, overheating, and sludge buildup. If it does malfunction it can lead to serious problems and should be replaced as soon as an issue is detected.
