Took my outback to a subaru dealership and was told my CJ boots were leaking and needed replaced. Chet inspected the CV boots and reported that it was the rack and pinion assy that was leaking and not the CV boot assy. He saved me $$$ and repaired what was needed. I just found my mechanic!

I was skeptical that MyMechanic was too good to be true! So much less expensive, and you do the work in my driveway?! We figured we'd give it a shot, and we are really glad we did. Casey is super-friendly and incredibly dedicated to his craft and his customers. We hit a snag when the repair was unexpectedly a little more complicated and took longer than estimated, and this had to mess up a good part of the rest of his day, but Casey didn't leave us hanging. He did what was needed to finish the job, and we were charged the original estimate even though it took longer than planned. We were really impressed with his commitment to us and the fidelity to the estimate. He also noticed some unusual, dangerous wear on our tires, which we thankfully were able to replace before going off on a long driving vacation the next day! Overall, the experience exceeded my expectations. Thanks, Casey and MyMechanic!

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.
