    Post Do i change my thermostat?

    After reading about all the thermostat probs on this site,i am wondering if mine is jammed open.when i was driving in the winter,it took 8-10 miles for the temp gauge to move,but the other day when it was warm,it took between 2-3 miles for the temp gauge to move.when the car is at its warmest,if i put the heater on full blast and turn it to hot,the temp gauge starts to go down,i have read that the gauge shouldn't move once it gets to the warmest,only goes down with heater on full hot.i am in 2 minds whether to change it,does it sound like its jammed open?

    Go for a steady drive on a quiet motorway - if the needle drops to the bottom, then it's definitely the thermostat.
