This is the second time I have used Your Mechanic and had specifically requested Peter for my service. I was once again impressed beyond measure by his customer service, knowledge about my vehicle and overall professional manner. Your Mechanic has been a wonderful option when I needed vehicle service and I highly recommend their services and if you're in the Phoenix metro area, Peter in particular.

I had an electrical problem with my car (wouldn't start). I thought it went beyond the typical dead battery situation (battery wouldn't take a jump, there were no preceeding hard starts), so I wanted everything tested. It was convenient to have him come to the car, instead of me taking the car to a shop (since it wouldn't start, we were probably looking at towing). I could have changed the battery out myself, but I wouldn't have known if there was some underlying issue or not (starter, generator, alternator). It turned out that it just was the battery (battery was bad, needed to be replaced), although Lucas tested everything, so now I have some peace of mind that it's not going to happen again.

All about 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.
