That's the second appointment with Ben Smith. Ben is a really professional and friendly mechanic I've ever met. He arrived just on 9:00am and practiced checking and fixing orderly and cleanly with his knowledge. I believe he has 39 years of mechanic knowledge.

Jeff was very friendly and answered any questions I had. We discussed what services I should have done in the future and the value of using factory parts for certain items. ie spark plugs. Jeff made sure to clean up after himself and kept my garage clean.

Rocco

Rocco is great, very good mechanic. He arrived on time and did a great job on my car. He had my car running in an hour or less. Has a very good since of humor, very helpful. I've scheduled him to do my 100,000 mile tuneup. I've used this place about a year ago and had a different mechanic and he was very good also. I highly recommend "your mechanic". They are #1 in my book.

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.
