I have a simple question is a thermostat open or closed when you start your engine after it has completely cooled down?

RE: Thermostat
The thermostat is closed when cold. It gradually opens as the engine warms. This totally a WAG but I would say it begins to open around 140F - 150F. Fully open depends on the temp. of the thermostat. Normally around 185F - 195F.
