Patrick showed up early for our appointments, went over the issues of my car and laid out the options of what I could do afterwards. He is very down to earth and is honest about the problem at hand. My car was having a problem overheating so after inspecting the car and troubleshooting he said that the car might have to require work on it up to $800+ which they could do but he suggested that there were other cheaper options for me to try. I would totally 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.
