The $38 Thermostat

Ever wonder what a $38 automotive thermostat looks like?

I sure did. Had to order one for my truck. They usually cost about $8.

Well, here is is. Gotta admit…wierdest looking engine thermostat I’ve ever seen…

Dodge V-10 Thermostat

The interesting thing is…it does not appear to really be a valve…those that have seen regular thermostats will wonder…like I do…just how the heck does this thing work?

No valve?

I expect it must actuate some other part in there. I guess I’ll know when I get the truck apart.
