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

This was the second time having Matt work on my car. The problem I had with my car he was able to fix it. He was on time and it didn't take him long at all to fix the car. The next time I need something done on my car I will be requesting Matt again.

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.
