Steven was fantastic! He finished it in half the time that was suggested, and he charged me a lot less. He let me know about any other issues that might be wrong, and he was super friendly. Definitely looking for his help again in the future.

I would recommend anyone to use Mechanic Auto Repair. I Can only speak for James as a mechanic. I have experience with James. Every thing checked out diagnostically . He still was able to find the problem. I now need more work done. So who do I ask for? (James} I Will give more feed back after the 6/18/2016. That's when next work is to be completed.

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.
