Lucas was absolutely awesome, I will be requesting him for all further work. He came out to my place within a couple hours of requesting a mechanic. He diagnosed my car as needing a new fuel pump, estimated cost around 500$. Called me the next day to let me know he had done some research on my car and found a recall notice for the fuel pump PLUS one for ignition issues and one for the steering column. I got all three issues fixed for free because Lucas went above and beyond by doing some research and discovering the recall. Thanks, Lucas for an awesome job!

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.
