Tien was great. He listened to what I had to say as far as the symptoms the car was having, rather than shut me out like other mechanics will do. He was very knowledgable and explained very well his diagnostic and most importantly he was able to figure out the issue when other mechanics could not figure it out. I would definitely recommend him!

Giving your car to service is in my mind the biggest hassle. Having said that, I have faced some bad experiences with simple things like Oil Changes @ Midas, and other corporate brands near my home. When my brother in law recommended me to Jason, I was in two minds, but I decided to give it a shot. Jason was fantastic. He was very detsiled, patient and helpful in explaining what oil changes are, how synthetic oils have evolved over the years, and which oils are best suited for my vehicle in today's times. I loved that knowledge he had. I will go to Jason for every car related service from this point on ! I would highly recommend him for any type of service you need.

Michael kept in communication with me and let me know that he could arrive earlier than expected, which was great. He explained in layman's terms details about my car and was less than half of what the dealer was going to charge. Michael is a great representative of yourmechanic and I recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, timely an honest service. Best part is that he came to my house on the weekend.

All about 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.
