5 stars are not enough to rate Chris. He arrived on time, extremely knowledgeable, patient with my curiosity, polite answering all my questions, thorough and detailed in his work and, overall, impressive. I've been to endless auto shops and mechanics which either resulted in temporary or partial satisfaction, or even disappointment. This was my experience today with, and, in particular, with Chris Allshouse: I made an appointment for half dozen (or so) misc inspection services for $200 to find out any and all possible issues that needed to be fixed - which Chris pointed out and explained (to a person who knows basically nothing about cars) in layman's terms. He first mentioned I needed new battery and some random fuses/etc as well as tune-up in near future (after I put some more miles on car). Of course my first worry and response was how much more will this cost me, but was delightfully surprised and immediately told not to worry because when I (a customer) pays for "inspection" service appointment, that money is credited toward any future repairs/work done on my car - LOVED IT! I only had to pay few dollars more to get some work done, new battery with install, fuses and more!! As for the tune-up, Chris explained each little thing needed in regards to the tune-up rather than just telling me I need a "tune-up" which could mean I needed a bunch of things done (that are most likely not even necessary). To sum up my review, and end my rambling, I randomly stumbled upon a long time ago. I think It took me two years, maybe even more, to finally drop my skepticism and make an appointment with, yet, because of Chris Allshouse, it took less than a minute to feel confident and excited to set up follow up appointment (as well as request to service my other car). Chris was very personable and easy to talk to. He was very informative and took the time to explain everything to me. I highly recommend him. For the first time, the results were different and with only one afterthought…What took me so long to make this decision!

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 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.
