Jay

Jay arrived right on time. Although, it took 2 hours longer than they had originally estimated; I appreciated that Jay took his time to make sure it was done right. Jay shared with me his thoughts on how there are certain jobs that can be more challenging without the use of lifters where he would be able to have more leverage and room to work with. When he was done; he gave me advice on future services the car may need and recommended at what mileage I should take care of them. However, I do have a recommendation to make to the people at YourMechanic.com; I think you should put into account mechanics' advice and/or suggestions before quoting a service. It would greatly help on accuracy as far as time frame and/or whether a service may or may not be possible to get done on a driveway rather than a shop. All in all I was very happy with the job Jay did and I would definitely recommend him to people I know.

The only reason Jose wasn't on time was because the website double booked him. He was very apologetic when he arrived. He finished in an hour & was very friendly. I asked him a few questions and he explained them very well. Not to mention having someone come out to my house was AWESOME!!!!

All about Car 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.
