He let me know he was on his way about an hour before he arrived. So it didn't catch me off guard. He was professional, and my car is running good again. Will definitely use him again!

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!

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.
