Lucas was early for our appointment and was very helpful. He took his time with the work and even test drove the car after he was done repairing it. I definitely will have him do work for me again.

Tom is a very good mechanic Wish there would be more people around like him. He fixed the problem in a very short time. I had this problem before and it took the Pontiac Dealer 4 month to fix it not to mention the cost. Thanks again Tom. Regards Juergen Westerwelle

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.
