I didn't have any special work done, just an oil change and tire rotation. No issues at all. He advised on future changes to air filter and brakes. He didn't try to pretend that there is urgent work that needs to be done now (like some other places do).

On his last visit Theo recommended a power steering fluid change as it needed it and to rid the sqeakes it made when you turn the wheels...turns out that wasn't the cause but Theo didn't give up and found the problem and to adjust position of a pump which the vibrations were causing the noise...Thanks Theo

Carlos is a great mechanic, who is hard working and knows how to get the job done. He showed up on time every time for every appointment he had with me. My CV axle was stuck in the transmission and with many attempts and tedious hours, he managed to remove and replace my axle. I would request him again for future appointments and would recommend him to family and friends. He's done a great job and I am a satisfied customer!

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.
