Q:ok here is what is going on with me. Car is always over heating coolant is full but will only over heat if i am not moving when i am moving and gas is pressed the gauge on the dash board drops back down so could this be the thermostat?
A:The Thermostat could possibly be the problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.
A:Yes. Also could be the cooling fan or the water pump. And the sensors don't work right if you leave air in the lines after overheating.
Q:does this have a fail safe design so that it locks open in an overheating situation to allow coolant to continue to flow?
A:Unfortunately, the thermostat does not have a fail safe to lock it open. The thermostat getting stuck close is a common automotive problem for overheating. When you have an overheating problem that is one of the first things a mechanic checks. For more information you can contact us at 1-877-ADVANCE or visit www.advanceautoparts.com
