Chris was on time and very honest. Tried to help with my interest in mind and gave me options that I had. He could not fix the problem because is required heavy equipment but gave me very good advice.

My 1993 Acura had been in desperate need for an oil change, and I have been totally dragging my feet, despite knowing better. On the evening of my appointment, Jason called me around 6:45PM, telling me that he was in the Blossom Hill area and would be a bit tardy getting to me. Sure enough, he arrived at my designated location promptly after that, and started with my vehicle. Jason was incredibly thorough, examined everything, communicated to me everything he found, and took care of the scheduled oil and filter change like a pro. Turns out that I'm gonna be in the market for a new water pump: Guess who I'm gonna book to fix it once I save up the amount? =)

All about Thermostat Replacement

A thermostat is part of the cooling system that regulates the temperature of the coolant in the engine. The thermostat is a metal valve that has a temperature sensor built in. It can either be open or closed. When the thermostat is closed, it keeps the coolant in the engine. When the engine gets to a predetermined temperature, the thermostat opens allowing coolant to circulate. The circulation of coolant prevents the engine from overheating. If the thermostat fails to open, the car will overheat. If the thermostat fails to close, the engine may never reach the optimal temperature (~220F). The thermostat opens and closes many times when the car engine is running. It is the most common component in the cooling system to fail, causing the car to overheat.
