My follow up with Jamahl went as expected. He came in, completed the job (in less than the time allotted), and kept the area he worked in the same condition as it was when he first got in. After the work done on my vehicle, it is now back to what I remember it sounding like! Put a smile on my face! Thank you Jamahl and to the guys at YourMechanic!

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.
