Ben

Could not have asked for a better mechanic. Ben arrived 15 minutes before appt. (what a wonderful surprise), got to work on my car, was finished timely, cleaned up the door. He was polite, cheerful and personable. It was such an unusual experience to have a mechanic who fixed your car and didn't try to "sell" you more that was needed. Usually my husband has to first meet the mechanic to ask for an estimate because we found out that it's always higher when I ask for it! I will recommend Ben to my friends. By the way, Ben was recommend to me by a friend of the family Cedric Senter. (he should get the $20 you offer for recommending Yourmechanic)

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.
