The Cummins Thermostat on your Dodge Ram allows low-temperature coolant from the radiator into the engine to keep the operating temperature within a predetermined range. Operating a Cummins 5.9L with a bad thermostat will cause the thermostat to get stuck in the open or closed position. A defective thermostat will cause the engine to operate either below the correct operating temperature or above it leading to an overheat condition. If your 12 Valve 5.9L Cummins is currently experiencing any of these symptoms, it's time to replace the Dodge 5.9L Cummins 180 Degree Thermostat Kit yourself to alleviate this issue.
