This is my first time hearing of something like this. Patrick was very nice. I guess he had time available earlier than my appointment and asked if i would like it done sooner and I was like "yesss that would be great" .....i was able to drive my own car for lunch. Simple things in life to make my life easier is always appreciated.

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.

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.
