Car Thermostat Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Thermostat all about?

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.

Thermostat

Keep in mind:

  • The entire cooling system should be inspected when the thermostat is replaced.
  • When the thermostat is replaced, the gaskets and housings should be cleaned thoroughly.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer in the car for codes.
  • Verify that the car is overheating.
  • Remove and replace thermostat if it is faulty.
  • Clean old gasket surfaces.
  • Remove corrosion from housings/hose connections.
  • Fill cooling system.
  • Check for leaks and proper operating temperatures.

Our recommendation:

Have the thermostat replaced anytime you have major work done on the coolant system.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Thermostat?

  • Engine overheats.
  • Car heater does not work.
  • Check Engine light is on.

How important is this service?

A vehicle’s engine gets extremely hot, and in order to avoid overheating, it needs to be properly cooled. The engine is cooled by a viscous liquid called coolant. The coolant is circulated around the engine, where it absorbs heat, which allows the engine to remain at a safe temperature. A fan then lowers the temperature of the coolant, which allows it to run back through the engine once more. The thermostat is responsible for determining when the coolant needs to enter the engine. The thermostat determines the temperature of the engine, and then acts as a valve that allows coolant in, or keeps coolant out. When the engine is too cold, the thermostat keeps coolant out; when the engine is too hot, it lets coolant in.

When the thermostat stops working, it will either get stuck open or closed. If the thermostat is stuck open, the coolant will constantly flow through the engine, absorbing too much heat, and the engine will never reach optimal running temperature. If the thermostat is stuck closed, the coolant will never circulate through the engine, and your engine will quickly overheat, which can cause severe damage.

My experience with the mechanic you guys sent was great. He was really thorough and did not have a problem explaining anything regarding how he was going to resolve my car overheating issue. However, I did have a problem with the company that recommended him because those guys did not do a good job of communicating with the customer about resolving issues when it came to parts. I felt that me as the customer had to call you guys on three occasions asking each representative the same question about how long it was going to take to get the parts to fix the car after it has already been torn apart. The first two representatives said that were going to call back with the information regarding completing the job, but they never did which mad me call you guys again. The third representative, Mr. Paul Lugo did a fantastic job with setting me up with an appointment for mechanic to come back out to complete the job. He was really helpful in getting with the parts department to canceling out the parts ticket because I had to find my own parts for the car. In conclusion, I hope in the future when you guys get the parts wrong for the customer car that you guys do a better job in correspondening with the customer about when parts will be available and when the job will be completed.

Grzegorz arrived on time and ready to work. He finished the work in the estimated time and made sure he did it correctly. He even ran out to the autopart store to get the correct part that was missing.
