I'm a first time customer, who's likely to be a customer for life now! What an amazing service. Peter was prompt, courteous and very thorough. This is the 2nd major repair to my car in less than month. During my prior experience I was very anxious and never felt comfortable that I was actually getting what I was paying for. With my alternator replacement I feel confident the work promised was completed, my entire vehicle was inspected and I don't see getting stranded again anytime soon.

We wonder why the scale doesn't go higher?! This was our first time using Your Mechanic and we were very pleased. Ben called before he came, showed up early. Completed the repair quickly and completely. He demonstrated fantastic manners and a heart of God. We had the final receipt within minutes of completion. We feel like we just gained a personal mechanic! Thanks, Ben!

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.
