This has been an incredible experience using MyMechanic with Chris Almshouse. Chris was on time - actually a bit earlier which worked for me and Chris. He was thoughtful enough to explain everything he was doing to my transmission and described what he found while working on my car. He seems to have a deeper understanding of auto mechanics that you generally won't find in some of the brand named auto repair garages in the area. I will definitely use MyMechanic for my other car and for my Mercedes as well recommend MyMechanic on my Facebook account. Thank you very much! - D.Chaney

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.
