Casey was very friendly communicative and helpful. While doing the oil change, he gave me several tips on doing the oil change at home myself and explained every steps. He gave me a call before his departure to let me know that he has left the place, but due to the traffic he arrived at my office 45 mins later to the appointment time. It would have been nice if I had some heads up about it before I called him 5 mins after the appointment time to see where he was at. During the call he let me know that he'd get to my office in 20 min, and arrived 40 min after that call. Well, I guess to be fair there was bad traffic and he had left his place 40 min prior to the appointment time and the office building was a little bit tricky to find. Anyways, after his arrival the oil change was completed in timely manner and overall everything else was very satisfactory.

He was very nice and friendly from the very movement he showed up. He was on time and after quick meet and explaining job, he went straight to work. He explained how he was going to perform Gasket valve replacement and CV axle replacement job. I left him with his work and after few hrs, when I got back. He was finishing up with the job. He explained to me in detail what was done and what he recommends to make make sure car stays in good condition. Over all I was very happy with the experience and would call and recommend "yourmachinic.com" and specially Franky to all who I know. Thank you Franky

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.
