Yes! Your car CAN run too cool. Todays cars run at temps up to
220 degrees. These high temps help todays engines run very efficient. The
thermostat regulates the temp of your engine to maintain these temps. But,
if your thermostat fails open, the engine temp drops causing engine to not
be as efficient as normal. Usually no symptoms would be present as far as driveability, but it
can effect your fuel economy causing you to use more gas than necessary.
Each manufacturer has there own temp specification. It's best to
look in your owners manual under "instrument panel". It will have an expected
range of your gauge. Usually if the temp gauge is out of this range it should be looked at.
You should get your check engine light checked out as soon as possible. Just because
there is no "obvious" symptom noticeable to you does not mean possible damage to other components or

drawback of not addressing the check engine light is if a new problem
arises you wont know because light has been on "masking" the additional problems your car is trying to
communicate to you.
