I am not one to make comments on my experiences with an individual or a company. I am today because I feel it is worth 5 minutes to do so. I had another mechanic from "your mechanic" come prior to this visit and fixed a few ancillary things on my Mercedes. However, there were unique issues with my electrical that had me spinning. I called the company and explained the prior situation and was at the point where if they did not fix my issues I had already decided I would never use them again. That did not happen! They called and after my lengthy explanation, not only did they come back out, but send the guy that knew Mercedes electrical better than any other. This group is stellar and if they continue to take care of people the way they did me "your Mechanic" will be a household name.

Theo was ontime and extremely courteous. He diagnosed my vintage Mercedes' problem and returned a week later. The replacement part they sent him was incorrect, so he reassembled my dashboard and waited for the correct replacement. When it arrived, he not only installed it, but followed me to a service station and then test drove the vehicle to check for other problems. I will ABSOLUTELY use Your Mechanic.com in the future to avail myself of a great mobile service. Thank you.

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.
