Not only did he show up on time, but finished the repairs faster than normal and fixed a couple extra things on top of it (flat tire, missing oil cap), and also diagnosed my vehicle to give me a rundown of what repairs and maintenance should be done next. Above and beyond!

Chet was very professional, knowledgeable and nice. He completed the work as requested and let us know about a couple of things that needed work. He also suggested new tires, even though he and the company don't sell tires. I feel very comfortable driving my Baja again.

Kenneth

Couldn't be happier with Kenneth. He contacted me early to see about bumping up my appointment and worked around my schedule to look over my recent used car purchase. He quickly diagnosed the issue triggering the check engine light, explained what should be done, and even talked me through how to replace the necessary parts just in case i wanted to do it myself. Awesome.

Tyler was awesome to say the least. He was prompt and good about communicating with me throughout the entire process of working with him. He fixed a number of issues with my car and I have the quotes/invoices to prove that I saved over 50% by using YourMechanic over said autoshop. I will definitely look to book work with YourMechanic, and specifically Tyler, for any car care needs in the future!

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.
