Patrick was the mechanic that came out to change my spark plugs and wires and I could not have gotten a better mechanic. It was so nice to have someone who actually took the time to make sure everything was back in the correct place and was running right before he left. I was totally happy with his service.

Terry showed up on time. He was friendly and professional. Inspected and determined repair that was needed. Unfortunately parts house didn't have part in stock(the car is a '91), had to be ordered so could not complete the repair.

Kirk came with the correct battery replacement and had the necessary sockets and extensions to reach a hard to reach nut that secured the battery clamp. I am glad I didn't have to use a towing service or get a jump start to go to a service station!

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.
