Peter was excellent. He was available earlier than the appointment time and showed up and asked a few questions about my problem and immediately began working on my vehicle. He explained what he was doing and how the thermostat operates on the vehicle to me. I highly recommend Peter to anyone and will use him again when I need any more work done on my vehicle. Thank you, Peter.

This was his second time to our house for a pretty major fix. He was delayed due to traffic, but Called ahead and was there when he said he would be. Again he was courteous and knowledgable. I look forward to seeing him again to get our poor car back on the road again!

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.
