Timothy

Timothy was terrific, highly knowledgeable and very personable. I had scheduled an appointment to have my daughter's O2 sensors replaced, but after he got here and assessed the situation, he said that we didn't need them replaced. He cleaned out a few areas that might have been causing the problem which reset the check engine light. I didn't get charged for anything except a diagnostic and the gas treatment he put in the car. The repair shop we had originally checked with had said the sensors needed replacing and quoted us $400 to do so and I'm sure if we had gone there instead of with Timothy, they would have been replaced without actually fixing the problem. Timothy was up front about everything he was doing in the car and gave us a list of possible upcoming maintenance items. I loved the service and will definitely use it 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.
