This is my second service at my home by YourMechanic. I have been very happy with the service. My Dad taught me to do preventative maintenance on my cars, and to check the oil often. I have a 2001 VW Jetta, which I love. 166,000 miles and counting. I check the oil every other time I get gas, as VWs burn hot. Both mechanics from YourMechanic remarked how well I maintain my car.

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.
