Russell called and asked if would be okay and arrived early. He quickly diagnosed a complex starter issue. He obviously has a great working knowledge and explained all the details as he went along. The repair was complicated by the shoddy quality of workmanship from a previous repair. Russell had to repair the previous repair and replace the starter as well. I am very impressed with Russel and Your Mechanic service. I highly recommend Russell and Your Mechanic. Speedy, fair priced quality work, by an honest company and an honest and capable mechanic! What more could we want? Thank you Russell!

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.
