This was my first time trying yourmechanic.com and I was very nerves due to bad mechanic experiences in the past. But when Lucas arrived he made me a BELIEVER in this site. He was very knowledgeable and took his time to explain what was wrong with my car to me. I will look no where else I found a GREAT mechanic and GREAT service..

Matthew is a true professional. It was like having a personal mechanic. I wasn't sure where the issue was regarding my brakes (front/back, pads or rotors). Matthew walked me through potential issues and told me he would only do the work required. He found the issue and identified a major safety concern with my brakes. He allowed me to see for myself what the problem was and described exactly how the work would be done. It was reassuring knowing that I could get a professional mechanic that can solve my brake problem at my convenience and at my home. I would more than likely use Your Mechanic for my auto service and definitely request Matthew as my auto professional.

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.
