Augie was kind, courteous and professional. He arrived on time (early, but he called to see if it was okay first) and did all the work on my car in a timely fashion. He made me feel comfortable about it, and even though it was an oil change/filter I let him know we were driving across country and he did a full inspection to make sure we were safe. Great job and many thanks!

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.
