Dave helped me with a previous problem with my turn signal flasher and rearview mirror, and he took care of those very easily and effectively. Another problem arose where my power locks and stereo didn't work. He came prepared to do some significant rewiring. The good news is that the solution ended up being way simpler than that, and he fixed it very quick. He's been very prompt and reliable, and I'm very happy with his service!

Due to my schedule, I was tired and accidentally fell asleep while I was expecting a diagnostic appointment. However, Jose kept knocking on my door, and stayed on the phone with my mom (some how he had her number and not mine) even though it took my twenty minutes to finally wake up. When he looked at my car he instantly found the problem and explained to me what he needed to do and the cost estimate. He came back in the morning and fixed my belt and water pump all while letting me sleep! He's a very nice guy, the price was no where near as expensive as I was expecting. And he continued to give me after care advice for my car so I don't have any future problems. These guys come to door and fix whatever issue your vehicle has. Saves you on towing and you don't have to worry about wait time, leaving it in the shop. Definitely recommend!

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.
