Very experienced and knowledgeable. I had researched the issue with the a/c problem on my 2006 acura RL and so was able to make a custom request to just fix the failing component instead of replacing additional parts and even the compressor as quoted by other shops. Tien was easily able to accommodate the custom request and the a/c is working fine now. Highly recommended!

Dan is a very good mechanic; my brake job gave him a bit of trouble at the start but he persevered and completed the task within the time frame. He also did an inspection and recommended additional repairs. It is very likely that I will be using him in the near future!

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.
