Checking the thermostat

After starting a cold engine, the main thermostat valve is closed, and the upper part of the thermostat housing in good condition remains colder than other parts of it for some time

As the engine warms up, the main valve opens and the thermostat housing cover quickly heats up, confirming that the coolant has begun to circulate in a large circle (through the radiator).

The appearance of fluid circulation through the radiator is signaled by the sequential heating of the upper hose, the right tank and the right side of the radiator.
