Tien was very courteous and showed up on time. After looking at the car he determined additional parts would be required to do the job. It took a while to get a new quote. Not sure if this was Tien's fault or YourMechanic. The parts recommended were pricey and didn't include everything needed to complete the job (Tien uncovered that another pulley was needed but that wasn't in the new quote). I researched it myself, bought the parts on Amazon, and scheduled a different mechanic to come complete the job. Tien seemed a bit rushed and ready to move on to the next job. I think he'd be great on any job that is super straight forward. But if any troubleshooting is required he doesn't go the extra mile like I've seen from other mechanics to see it through to the end.

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.

Diagnostic was great. The issue I have is that the time from going onto your website to have a fixed car is FAR longer than if I had brought it to a shop. too long between website signup to diagnostic appointment, and then too long between diagnostic appointment to service appointment.

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.
