Joshua

Outstanding mechanic. Very knowledgeable. I have used him several times and he is always on time if not early, very respectful of my property, very clean. I have had him do different jobs on three different makes of cars including replacing timing belt and water pump, fixing power windows, replacing wheel bearings, replacing engine gaskets, replacing fuel pump, repairing fan blower in dash board. His diagnostic skills are outstanding. I can assure you, you will be very satisfied with his work. I usually don't write reviews but Joshua is really top notch, best I have ever found.

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.
