YourMechanic is a great idea! For a first time customer, I did not know what to expect. But after the first appointment for a car diagnosis, I am convinced that YourMechanic is one of the best home service of our time. I had a great encounter with my first mechanic. He knew what he was doing, explained the services well, and all at a very reasonable price. I was so impressed with the quality of service that I will use YourMechanic from now on.

Dave is the third person who has tried to diagnose the problem with my car and he fixed for about half of the original estimate in about half the time budgeted. I only hope that I'm able to get him again for ongoing service.

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.
