Rod

Rod was a very likable, up-front guy. Immediately diagnosed the problem and took steps to make sure it was fixed ASAP. The service was more expensive than if I had handled it myself, but it was more than worth the extra bucks to have someone else take care of it from start to finish. This was my first use of MY MECHANIC, but I would use them again with no reservations. Worth the money.

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.
