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.

Tien

I made an appt. for Tien to come by and replace the fuel pump for my no start diagnosed by him through the inspection I had a few weeks earlier. Tien got to work on the car immediately on arrival. As in many if not all jobs, it turned out to be a more complicated than expected. In the process of changing the fuel pump, he discovered that the new fuel pump was slightly different than the one being replaced and the wiring would need to be adjusted somehow to be able to use the new one. It was amazing to see as he used his knowlege and experience to make the necessary adjustments to make the part work! He could have taken the "shortcut way" which a lot of mechanics would have done. When he removed the old fuel pump, it seems that only the fuel hose part was damaged beyond repair, but the rest of the unit was intact and probably still working. He could have maybe just changed the hose part and left the rest of the old unit as is, but decided to replace the whole unit if he could, pending the wiring adjustment mentioned above. Thanks Tien for a great job highly recommend you to everyone!

Casey

So yourmechanic quoted me 1.5 hours labor, which seemed pretty low for a radiator, and it was explained by Casey that wasn't his time quote and it ended up being 3 hours, but he charged me 2.5.. and they gave him the wrong upper hose, but researching online for my car the upper hose isn't made by standard sources, including GM. He ended up trimming the old hose frayed ends and put it back on. A second appointment to install upper hose probably had another wrong hose sourced, but I ended up selling the car a few days later and relaying the issue to the new buyer.
