Lucas was the best! He told me exactly what needed to be done - and how inexpensively! I was expecting to spend about $1000 on a replacement axle - but when he showed me the pieces that needed replacing, they only came out to just over $100! He is an incredibly qualified, honest, and wonderful mechanic. I would love to have him service my car again and cannot recommend YourMechanic.com enough to all of my friends.

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.
