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!

Jason is an incredible asset to 'Your Mechanic". Be good to him, he is a keeper! He was working in the rain, came prepared, had a tent to cover car so he could work. He is unflappable. He perseveres till the job is done. I am certainly recommending 'your mechanic to friends'. Keep up the good work, it will be rewarded. Jason is A++++. Thank you Jason.

My experience with Brandon was extremely good. His customer service was top notch. I was actually scheduled to get a lot more done than expected but he told me that all my axle needed was some tightening around the bolts because who put them in before didn't put them on correctly. He also gave me a reference of what size bolts I would need to replace it with and he also recommended a few other things for my Saturn. The price was very reasonable. What sets Brandon apart from other mechanics is his customer service, knowledge and his attention to detail. I had a really good experience. I highly recommend him.

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.
