Joshua

Josh is a great guy and is very professional and boy is he ever thorough. He called me that morning and told me he had a cancellation and asked if he could come by earlier. I was happy to have it done earlier. He called again when he was nearby and said he'd be here in 5 mins. He's friendly and nice as can be. He knows what he is doing and explained it all to me in terms I could understand and then quickly got to work. After he finished, he told me about the front brakes being worn and recommended replacing them soon. He didn't pressure me to have this work done, just that they should be sooner rather than later. Based on that recommendation and the fact that I am starting to hear something when I step on the brake....so, I have made an appointment to have the brakes replaced and I am glad that I was able to book Joshua. Thank you!

We feel blessed to have met Lucas and have him as our mechanic. He always explains things very clearly, and he was so honest, there was no upselling or deception. He fixed the problem and so far the car is running very well, and we are so relieved. Being on a fixed income means its very important for us to have an honest mechanic and reasonable prices, so thankful to have met Lucas.

My original mechanic had to cancel, so Scott was able to show up within the next couple hours. He even showed up a little earlier than the original time, which was nice. It was quick, easy, and he was super friendly. I'll be looking for Scott again when I need repairs.

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.
