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.

Mark was going to replace the transmission fluid and fix a torn rubber cover of the drive mode selection stick. Having opened up the car he realized that he got a wrong filter part for transmission. This was not his fault (apparently yourmechanic did not ). So Mark had to come again and do a lot of extra work (for no additional pay). He also tried to glue the torn rubber. Somehow he put far too much glue and glued together parts which prevented the drive selection stick from going into some modes. He also somehow managed to leave unremovable superglue on the steering wheel. When I contacted him he came to separate the accidentally glued parts. He managed to fix the sticking but as a result also the part which was supposed to be glued disconnected again. He then told me he is going to look into replacing the part. He did not get back for two weeks. After I reminded him he said he could not figure out the part and said he'll get back to me. But after another week I just went to the authorized dealer and got it fixed. I also checked online and the part was very easy to find on

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.
