Tim did a great job replacing the tie rod ends and ball joints as well as replacing the intake manifold gaskets. Car handles real well after getting the front end aligned. The engine warning light is off right now but have had issues with it coming on with lean fuel codes. These codes PO171 & 174 can be caused by several issues with the car and have to be eliminated one at a time it seems, In any case I will use Tim again. Thanks Tim

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.
