The Thermostat resides between the engine and the radiator, regulating engine temperature. When the engine is cold, the valve of the thermostat is held shut to prevent coolant into the radiator. When the engine heats up, the valve opens so that coolant can circulate through the engine and cool the system. When a car overheats, it could be the result of a faulty thermostat.
