Augie was on time with the needed part and his tools. We talked a little about the process and he wanted to do a diagnosis first at no charge. After determining the suspect starter was at fault, he got right to work and had the job complete within the specified time. He took extra care and was sure to do a final inspection of the finished job. He knows cars and I recommend him for your car needs.

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.
