Brandon has performed 2 service calls at our home. After the first visit, my husband, whose such a skeptic, was sold. Needless to say, we plan to continue to use this service and request Brandon.

Enrique

A+ quality work, professionalism and friendliness. Enrique performed an initial inspection on my vehicle due to the temperature gauge light coming on. He arrived early and upon completion of the inspection provided me with very detailed information regarding the issue reported. I scheduled an appointment to perform the recommended work and let me just say Enrique is a jewel. Again, he arrived early he was friendly and courteous and described everything to me in detail. As soon as he completed the job, he explained what he did, why he did not have to perform certain other recommended repairs and the information was provided in such a way, that even me as a woman who knows nothing about cars could understand. I will definitely use Enrique in the future :-)

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.
