Chris did a great job in thoroughly inspection my car for why it wouldn't stay started. He was early, just in case he would need extra time to resolve anything unusual. As it turned out, my car battery was also dead, but he had a charger. Really nice experience.

It was a great experience. Lucas DeBarros was on time. He also called ahead of time to let me know that he would be there. He had great customer service skills, and he made me feel very confident that he would solve my car challenges. He was so pleasant and happy that I almost didn't want him to leave. He showed a genuine concern for my car problem and he was fast and efficient! With my next car challenge the awesome service of Your Mechanic and the happy smiling Lucas DeBarros will inevitably pop into my mind, and I will contact them.

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.
