Robert is THEEEE abbbb' like'soooo'lute best and coolest mechanic I have met and dealt with, EVER! If he were surgeon I'd trust him with my life w/o a second thought. No one enjoys having problems with their cars, but if you have one, count yourself blessed and lucky if Robert shows up to get things back to running and ship shape. Nothing less than a five in my book, and six if it were possible to add one more. ^5 Robert!

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.
