Jason was very hard working. He did what he believed to be on the best interest of his customer. He was very set on my car hitting the road in the best condition possible. He was very upfront about what he could not fix but referred places that I could go for those particular services. I was very satisfied with the service from Jason. I just may make him my personal mechanic 

Despite the part delay, rescheduled appointment, obnoxious heat and a completely dead battery (none of which was at the fault of Brikk) Brikk was able to power through and get me and my G8 back on the street. Brikk gave me some oil lubricating tips for my over 150,000 mile ride. He trusted the information I provided about my alternator issues and was able to complete the job without any glitches as far as I know. 1st experience already referring... Thanks a bunch.

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.
