Dan was great! He called me around 11 am to asked if he could come earlier, he arrived around noon and got the job done by 1:30. That included going to get a hose and installing it! I will definitely book future appointments to use Dan and I have already told all my friends! Great job and thanks for not giving me the run around like Pep Boys! They wanted to charge me $1012.52 to replace my whole cooling system when it was only a heater hose! Dan is a life saver and a wallet saver!

This was my first time using YourMechanic -Allen was early to my appointment - which was great, and I appreciated him calling ahead. Allen was patient and thorough - answering all my questions (I had several lol) quickly identifying a root cause, and providing the estimate. He also did a great inspection on additional issues with my car (not related to my original inquiry) which helped to eliminate any surprises. I decided to book an appointment afterwards for my coolant leak repair - which ended up being a worn out heater core hose.

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.
