Matthew was very nice and seemed to know his way around my car pretty well. I got a text as soon as he arrived, and he immediately began working right after he got here and talked to me. Figured out the problem within 15 minutes, and he then explained the options I had, not pressuring me to do anything, which I really appreciated. This is currently the person I plan on getting any future advice about my car from. Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Thanks again, Matthew.

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.
