It's great to have your own mechanic and Enrique is a professional. He shows up on time, promptly gets to the job you've shceduled and completes it quickly. He then takes the car for a test run to make sure he's done the job in the best way possible. He's friendly, polite and knows his cars - couldn't ask for better service! So happy I found Your Mechanic! In the past I would take the car in and sometimes have to leave it because they couldn't get to my car with all the others ahead of it. Love the ease of being able to schedule Enrique and know he'll show up and get the job done and I'll be driving my car again in a few hours! And I don't have to drop it off or wait in a waiting room for it.

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.
