About Thermostat Housings

Part of the car's engine cooling system, the Toyota thermostat has an important part to play in ensuring the engine stays at the right temperature for optimum performance, power and efficiency. The thermostat functions to prevent the movement of liquid coolant into the radiator until the engine has reached the correct temperature and allows the coolant to flow into the radiator when the engine needs cooling down. The Toyota thermostat housing functions to house and protect the thermostat.

The thermostat lies between the engine and the radiator, in the Toyota thermostat housing, sealed tightly with a thermostat housing gasket.

The thermostat, based on the temperature of the engine, will either open or close, acting as a valve, enabling or preventing the coolant to flow into the radiator. If the temperature of the engine is too cold, the thermostat remains shut, keeping the coolant out of the radiator. If the engine temperature is too hot, the thermostat opens, allowing the coolant to flow in. The thermostat opens to release the flow of coolant into the radiator when the engine has warmed up to the right temperature. By waiting until the engine is fully warmed up before releasing the coolant, the thermostat is enabling the engine to warm up as quickly as possible, which helps the engine to perform better and helps to reduce wear and tear on engine components, prevent deposits and reduce harmful emissions. The thermostat functions to stop the car engine from overheating, by opening to enable coolant to travel into the radiator. The thermostat housing plays a crucial role in helping to protect the thermostat and ensure that the car runs at a proper working temperature.

A sign of a failed thermostat or a fault with thermostat related components such as the thermostat housing is an engine that overheats or an engine that doesn't reach the right heat for correct engine operation. If corroded or cracked the thermostat housing should be replaced as the thermostat could get damaged. Since this component is crucial to maintaining correct engine temperature, and therefore vital for running the engine, it's important to make sure the thermostat housing is intact and functioning as a protective casing. Consulting with your mechanic to make sure the correct fault has been found is a good idea before purchasing replacement parts. When replacing this part, choosing to fit a good quality Toyota thermostat will guarantee compatibility with the make and model of your vehicle.

Toyota trivia

  • It's not exactly a secret, but surprisingly few people are aware that Toyota also makes a couple of other brand-name cars. That's because they own or partially own Lexus, Subaru, and Scion.
  • Without the US, Toyota very likely wouldn't exist today as we know it. In 1950, the car company was struggling to fight off bankruptcy and only managed to make 300 trucks until the Korean War kicked off. The US then put in an order for 5,000 vehicles, transforming the company and its future.
  • That founder's name was Toyoda, but the name of the company was changed to Toyota because it took one less stroke to write in Japanese. Eight is a lucky number in Japan, and Toyota takes eight strokes to write, and so Toyota it is!
  • The first car company to produce over 10 million cars in a single year (which they did in 2013), Toyota also boasts the record-breaking sales of one Corolla sold every 37 seconds (every 27 seconds in 2013). That made the Corolla the best selling car of all time!
  • Incredibly, there are more Toyota made cars on the world's roads than any other vehicle. It's not just high sales figures that make that viable either. Their durability means that even Toyotas that were sold 20 years ago are still on the road!
