Noe went above and beyond the service I requested (oil change and tire rotation). He gave my car a thorough inspection, and took detailed images of several areas I need to put additional maintenance into. He was fast too - in and out in less than an hour! Thank you Noe for an excellent job!

My appointment was scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Kyle called to say he would be about 25 minutes late. He arrived when he said he would. He seemed knowledgeable and was polite and friendly. He quickly came to his conclusion that my old Buick was done and I should look to buy another vehicle. A little too quickly for my liking, but he was not trying to sell me parts or services I did not need. He gave me good advice on how to financially maximize what's left of my old car. My only criticism and it's a small one, is that he did not seem interested in hearing my opinions or comments about what I had done to or replaced on the car. He seemed confident that my vehicle was beyond repair and moving on was my best option. I would use YourMechanic Services Inc. 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.
