Joshua

Joshua was GREAT! He worked cleanly (first spreading a tarp and mat to catch any drips/drops), safely (jacking up the car and placing the front end on solid jack stands), and knew what he was doing. He ask several questions about the engine before starting to replace the timing belt. He came with all the possible parts he would need even though he didn't use all of them. Since we had a new water pump he gave us a credit for the one not used. He explained what he found and what caused the engine to not run correctly. The concept of Your Mechanic coming to our house to do the repairs saved us towing and repair costs, not to mention the free education I received as Joshua explained what he was doing and finding. He worked quickly and quietly and completed the repairs within the estimated time. He did a very complete cleanup of the car and work area before leaving. Recommend him and Your Mechanic - absolutely. We are hoping to have YourMechanic work on our other cars.

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.
