It was a crisp Feb. Morning, the birds were chirping, the air was fresh. Each of God's little creatures toiling about, everything so alive, except for the camshaft synchronization sensor on my 2005 Kia Sedona. Timothy showed up at the scheduled time, tools in hand. The service was prompt and informative. We all want a fair shake when dealing with mechanics, and I can assure you Tim's the man for the job.

Cary was very professional and kind. He was quick and still thorough with our vehicles. This was our first experience with yourmechanic and Cary left an awesome first impression! He changed our oil and rotated the tires on two of our cars, in the pouring rain! Yet, he maintained such a positive and helpful attitude. Of all the days to rush through a job, ours would have been one of them. Still, Cary told us about some other things we should look into and left us feeling safe and well taken care of. We will certainly be using this service again. It was so convenient and affordable. So thankful you're on the East Coast now!

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.
