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.

Josh was fantastic. This was the first time I have used this service and as a dealer I will be using this more and more for pre-inspections and repairs going forward and be recommending it to customers as well. It sure beats taking a car to our local mechanic and having to sort out drop off and pick up etc... Steve

Scheduled an appointment for spark plugs and wire replacement and blown away again by this companies service! Just the best mechanics to deal with out there. I had Steven Laramee come out for the service which he did quickly and efficiently. I also told him my problem about my oil pan drain plug being stripped and I couldn't get it off. Not only did he get it off, he did my oil change for me with the supplies I already had! He did this as a favor and its stuff like this that goes a long way when it comes to customer service. That is amazing considering the way other mechanic shops would have treated this! Just the best in town for auto repair and they come to you at the office or home! Thanks so much Steven!

Rarely have I dealt with anyone in any business that was as knowledgeable, professional, courteous and conscientious regarding my time as well as his. Did we encounter some problems with vendors etc? Yes - but Robert handled it like a pro and communicated any and all issues as soon as they arose. To me, I always expect a problem or 2 to arise in a transaction but it's how the business responds to these, as well as how well they perform their service, that I use to rate a business. Robert, you and Your Mechanic, my only regret is I can only give you a 10!
