Fixed the problem he came to fix. Identify 2 other (legitimate) problems. Changed oil. Noticed a minor leak after oil change on test drive. And he kept at it until he made absolutely sure there is no leak.. In fact, he gave me his cell to call him if I do notice a leak today and tomorrow. Absolutely superb experience!

Stefan arrived on time and fixed the problem very quickly. I have no more excuses to procrastinate repairs because my last 2 excuses have been eliminated that being time and money. The price was very affordable . I had already known what needed to be replaced because I had the code read by my neighbor but I also had a coupon at a local mechanic shop to get a free reading and estimate. I left my car for the day at this other mechanic shop only to receive the news that in order for them to find the problem they needed to charge me another $200 for "diagnostic work". I left there without an estimate but the next day my co-worker told me about yourmechanic.com so I called. I got a written estimate in a few minutes of $102. to replace the temp sensor. I scheduled the appointment and the next week the problem was fixed. I was charged $102 and never had to leave my house. What's not to like about that !

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.
