Jason was on time (actually, called ahead and was early, which was great!), professional, and attentive to my (many!) questions/concerns. The part replacement and safety check were spot-on and got me back on the road far faster than I had expected. Jason and YourMechanic will definitely be my go-to for future work. All this, and you just can't beat the fact that the mechanic comes to you, on your schedule!

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.
