Peter was great! He showed up 15 minutes early and was friendly and personable. He got the work done in under the estimated time. He is very knowledgeable and has a ton of experience. He took the time to also look at my A/C. I will definitely look to book Peter again for my next repair!

I wish I would have known about YourMechanic sooner! Dan called me several hours before my appointment to see if he could come earlier. I said yes, and then I ended up being the one that was late. He was very professional and friendly! The cost of this repair was about half of what I was quoted at a repair shop. I could not be happier with this service, and I have already recommended YourMechanic (and Dan, specifically) to several of my friends! I will absolutely try to make my future appointments with Dan again!

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.
