I have an older Mercedes 600SL and was somewhat concerned about using some one other than a dealer, but my fears were put to rest after my initial conversation with Steve. Steve was on time, knowledgeable, had all of the required tools. diagnose the problem and gave me a stalemate of cost for the repair. He did not try to over sale me on something I didn't need. He made the repairs made sure that everything was correct and assured me that if I needed anything more he was just a phone call awaly. Steve called me the next day just to check that the repair was good.

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.
