Augie

Augie was friendly, knowledgeable , showed up on time and finished everything in a timely manner. I gave 4 stars because he came for a brake pad and rotor replacement, but didn't have the correct tool, so he had to rechedule for another day which, was a bit frustrating and inconvenient. He did rechedule for another time that worked for me a few days later, but I do not normally drive to work(take metro) so driving in twice was slighly bothersome. Other than that, I would recommend him.

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.
