Which of the following is not a true statement about thermostats? Faulty thermostats are often the cause of air pockets in the coolant passages. They can also cause an increase in fuel consumption and poor engine performance. If the thermostat is stuck open, the coolant may not reach the desired temperature because it is cooled before it gets hot If a thermostat is stuck closed, coolant will not flow between the engine and radiator and the engine will quickly overheat

    To determine

    The incorrect statement about thermostats.

    Explanation of Solution

    Thermostats serves the purpose of controlling the minimum temperature for operation of the engine. It also controls the quantity of coolant flowing into the radiator. They can be the reason of overheating and they may also cause an increase in fuel consumption and poor engine performance. A thermostat closes when the temperatures is low or the engine gets cold and opens when the engine temperature rises up to certain level allowing the coolant to enter into the radiator...
