Water pump bypass-4.7L

DESCRIPTION

The 4.7L engine uses an internal water/coolant bypass system. The design uses galleries in the timing chain cover to circulate coolant during engine warm-up preventing the coolant from flowing through the radiator. The thermostat uses a stub shaft located at the rear of the thermostat (Fig. 9) to control flow through the bypass gallery.

OPERATION

When the thermostat is in the closed position the bypass gallery is not obstructed allowing 100% flow.

When the thermostat is in the open position the stub shaft enters the bypass gallery obstructing bypass coolant flow by 50%. This design allows the coolant to reach operating temperature quickly when cold, while adding extra cooling during normal temperature operation.
