Above and beyond... That's really all that needs to be said for the experience. Tyler came out to my office to replace my ignition switch and ignition lock cylinder and was just super friendly. With the lock cylinder, without any background, he recognized that the part didn't match the age of the vehicle as I has a new steering column put in after my Jeep was stolen. He didn't even have to talk to me about it and identified the correct model year for the setup I have, not even in the general date range, but the exact year! Clearly very knowledgeable and super friendly on top of that. I'd definitely recommend him as a mechanic to anyone I know!

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.
