Almost an hour ahead of time and finished at the time I expected him to just be showing up! Was a nice guy and very informative and thorough with his inspection. Did a great job on my repair and made sure it was good to go instead of just fixing it and running.

Patrick knows his cars! He tracked my '02 Chevy Malibu's coolant loss problem to a leaky intake manifold gasket and completed the estimated-9 hour repair in 5 hours! He was punctual, efficient, and very knowledgeable. Thank you for the high quality repair, Patrick!

I am very satisfied with the work Dan did on my car. He knows his stuff and loves what he does. He pulled those bolts and stuff and put them back together without loosing a bolt or breaking something. I have never in my past car troubles had such a stress free experience and I had a lot. Thanks Dan!

All about 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.
