Rocco came to my home to check out my car since it would not start. I did not want to go through the hassle of having to tow it to a repair shop and wait around. I had a problem with my starter. With repairs like this you would think you'd have to go to a repair shop but I'm relieved I was able to have it fixed at my home from someone professional. He came and checked out my problem (which took less than an hour), provided an estimate along with how much time/labor would be involved and the next day came and made the repair. And I was able to save time without waiting around for other customers and cars ahead of mine like at a shop. I'd definitely use the service and call him again 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.
