Question about Volkswagen Jetta
If you are not getting a signal to your gauge, your car can still run. You just won't know if your car is overheating until it is too late. A bad thermostat won't keep your gauge from working. The temperature sensor that sends the signal to the gauge will keep it from working.
The thermostat helps your car in extreme weather. It helps your engine warm up in extreme cold so your heater will work sooner. And it helps you car cool itself off in extreme hot weather. As your engine water temp rises, the thermostat will open allowing the water in the radiator (that has been cooling) to flow into the engine block. The water that was in the block will go into the radiator to begin cooling.
In fair weather, you don't need a thermostat.
