Engine thermostat

Postby milsten » Wed Oct 26, 2016 2:16 pm


Last week, during the preparations for the winter lay-up, I removed the thermostat before flushing the engine and putting in anti-freeze liquid ( direct cooling).
The thermostat's upper bridge was broken ( corroded ?) although I didn't have any overheating problems. Maybe everything was kept in place by the thermostat housing. I don't know if this problems occurs often, but maybe it's a good idea to check the thermostat once or twice a year

Best regards
