David arrived early and was ready to go!! I was skeptical about this service, but figured I'd give it a shot. Historically, mechanics have a bad rep of "ripping off" women customers.I have quite a few mechanics in my family, so I know a bit more about cars than your average woman. I was fairly certain I had an issue with my fuel system, maybe a fuel pump or fuel filter. David told me he would check it out and let me know what he found. About 20 minutes after he arrived, I brought him a bottle of water (1:00 PM and HOOOOT!! Poor guy!!) My car was running!!! I was shocked to say the least. David said, my hose that comes off of the air cleaner was not attached properly, so it was causing the mass air flow sensor to freak out. He asked if I'd had anyone replace my air filter recently. Well, it just so happens that I had just had a transmission flush, oil change, tire rotation and system check done by a shop in Point Loma a few weeks prior for a trip my husband and I had taken to San Jose and San Francisco. Apparently when they checked my air filter, they didn't screw the clamps back together on the hose and it worked it's way off over the last few weeks of driving. I couldn't believe it!! I was so grateful to David for fixing the issue so quickly!! David took my car for a drive and came back with the all clear that it was good to go. I signed his phone app and we parted ways. He was very friendly and I really liked that he spoke sweetly of his wife. We discussed that he and my husband both have old Toyota trucks etc. He was great!! Then I got to thinking about it.......he could have REALLY took advantage of this minor issue I had and made some money off of me. He could have easily diagnosed it as what I expressed that I thought it was (fuel pump etc). BUT, he didn't. I have found an ETHICAL mechanic with INTEGRITY!!!??? WOW!!! Thank you David, you will be HIGHLY recommended by me to EVERYONE that I know!!!

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.
