Tien has rapidly become one of my favorite people. During the first inspection I discovered he had worked on my car years ago at a BMW specialty shop. How cool to find someone familiar with my 30 year old vehicle. He always shows up, on time, prepared, friendly and follows through with his paperwork. I am very happy to have reconnected with Tien.

Robert is a good mechanic. He came on time and did a good job in replacing the gaskets. It's been two days I didn't see any oil leak. Though my only concern was after the repair Robert forgot to clean the spilled oil on the parking spot. I am not exactly sure, whether the mechanic is responsible for cleaning the already leaked oil on the engine and on engine splash shield. But I expected it be cleaned. Apart from cleaning the oil, he had done a great job. If the cleaning part is not his job, I will definitely give 4.5 stars for his repair. As I expected it be complete giving him 3 stars.

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.
