Dave showed up at the exact time and finished the complicated job in 2.5 hours. The coolant had to be emptied in order to fix the issue. He topped it up and warned me that it might need a little bit more water after driving a few miles. The coolant warning did come up and I topped it up and no more issues since then. The buggy temperature level / thermostat/check engine is no longer a problem and I should be able to pass smog now.

Car - Audi TT Sports Jason has worked multiple times with my car. This appointment was wrt to some squeaking noises from the power steering. He inspected the car, and quickly found the sensor to be defective. We went ahead to order the part, and Jason would fix it in the next appointment. Jason has deep mechanical knowledge of car(mine is European). He diagnoses, the problems very accurately, and explains very well. Jason also goes the extra mile, helping to buy the correct item. All in all, i would recommend him very highly, and would reach out to him for further repairs.

I was so impressed with my first interaction with YourMechanic. The interface is easy and intuitive to use. When I had a question, the customer service representative was direct, helpful, and positive. Chris was an absolute lifesaver. I felt taken care of and never worried about being overcharged; the pricing was transparent and honest. As a new car owner who knows little about cars, I loved this service and would strongly recommend the website and Chris to anyone else.

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.
