Had a problem with my manual transmission car not shifting into gear but I wasn't sure what the issue was. Lucas was able to diagnose it quickly, explained to me in detail how it should work, and rescheduled for another day to fix it as it required a new part. The issue was resolved in a timely matter in the following appointment, and was ultimately a pleasurable first experience with YourMechanic. Thanks Lucas!

Richard was top notch. He pointed out stuff on the car I wasn't even thinking about and gave me advice on how I could even sell my car for the most value (I'm selling it in the next month). Highly recommend!

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.
