The mechanic was professional and installed the part I needed, but the installed part was broken, my problem wasn't fixed, and the mechanic had no idea when asked why my car wasn't fixed. But did offer to let me keep the old starter.

Xavier was on time, friendly, personable, and professional during the entire process. He kept me informed throughout the repair, taking the time to point out not only ebay he was doing, but what i need to keep in mind for future maintenance on my car. His fast work, upbeat personality, and excellent pricing will keep me coming back for all of my future repair/maintenance needs. Thanks so much!

Casey

I had a great experience with Casey. He was on time, hard-working and honest. I absolutely trust him with my car and know that he would never try to pull one over on me (something that women experience far too often with mechanics, unfortunately). I will definitely be requesting him again for my future needs.

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.
