Tom

Tom was very professional and courteous. Very satisfied with the service he provided. He has a very good understanding of all the parts in the vehicle. It's a 5/5 for me but with the caveat that goes to a lot of mechanics (including Whitney): They generally assume that the customer doesn't know anything about the working parts in the car, and answer the queries with a defensive, passive-aggressive tone which can be annoying. Perhaps that is result of the customers they meet. I felt that way, and had to stop him by saying that I am a physicist (and have experience working with thermocouples, pumps and other mechanical parts)- which obviously, I don't like to do.

Genaro arrived about 10 minutes earlier and had parts ready for my request job on replacing the high pressure power steering hose. It took him about 1.5 hour to have the hose replaced, refilled and checked out. It has been great for last few days, no more leak. Great job.

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.
