TJ

TJ arrived at our house exactly on time and replaced an axle/CV shaft assembly on my GMC Envoy. His work is excellent, and he is very knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and easy to talk with. He answered all our questions perfectly, and made sure we understood his answers. We had no worries at all about his work. Due to physical limitations, it is difficult for us to go to a garage - We are very thankful that he is able to come to our house and work on our vehicles. It's like having a good friend who is an excellent mechanic, too! We always look for TJ when we need to have automotive work done, and we highly recommend him to all! Thank you TJ! :)

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.
