Robert was on time. He cleaned up the area after fixing the car. And, Robert took a few minutes to explain what would happen during the job, as well as what other future work might be necessary. Courteous, focused, efficient yet conversational. Thank you Robert for getting this vehicle mobile again.

Lucas

I had battery trouble, needed a new battery. Lucas went to an auto parts store to replace my battery, but my car's preferred model wasn't there. He got the 2nd model, so I could drive for the day, then came back the next day with the preferred model when it was in and switched it out. It was important because my battery is in the trunk; it's possible the 2nd model wouldn't have vented correctly, and if not, it would have been in the trunk (in the car). So he made it possible for me to drive while waiting, and then replaced the battery as soon as he could, making an extra visit to our house. Great service.

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.
