Peter was a little late he said because of construction. I have an appointment to get the Alarm removed as he suggested and I will take the battery back but until then I won't know if this will solve the problem.

Had a coolant leak. Needed an engine gasket and thermostat replaced. Also needed a flush of the coolant system and oil change. It was a very long job and Danny was dedicated to getting it done. He also gave me other automotive advice and answered all of my questions thoroughly. The car is no longer overheating or leaking. He did a great job. I would definitely use this service again.

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.
