Look at your temperature gauge. Normal operating temperature is 195°F. If your thermostat is stuck open the gauge on the dash will read considerably below that. Or you can get a laser type thermometer. Go on a 30 minute drive and measure the temperature of the thermostat housing. If it's cold or cool, thermostat is bad. If it reads 195°F or slightly higher thermostat is good but heater core is clogged. HTH. -Jim
