This was my first time using this service, which I had not even heard of until the day before, so I didn’t know what to expect. It really could not have gone any better. Steven is very professional, knowledgeable, and has a great demeanor. I was there the whole time, to help in any way I could (which wasn’t much) but I learned a few things as he was happy to answer my questions. I will be recommending him and this service.

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.
