This was my first time using Your Mechanic and I have to say I will most likely be coming back to use this service for any car troubles I may have. Tired of taking my car to dealerships and feeling like I am being taken advantage of and told things need fixed when they don't need to be. Matt was very honest and told me why he thought my car wouldn't start. He didn't pressure me into getting anything fixed right away and I appreciated that. I know if I would have taken my car to a dealership to have it looked at it would have cost me much more than what it cost going through Your Mechanic. I would highly recommend this company and Matt to anyone looking for a great mechanic.

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.
