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!

We used Enrique for a pre-purchase inspection on an older Westfalia. He did an incredibly thorough job checking out the vehicle, taking over a 100 pictures for me to see what was going on with the car. His recommendations saved me money!

My car broke down and had to be towed to my apartment. I used Tom's services to diagnose the car. He kept me informed about the details of the diagnostics he ran. Unfortunately, the problem with my car was bigger and Tom told me that it will take many more hours to diagnose. He was very honest and laid out all the options for me. Sadly, it is my car's fault and not Tom's. He tried to do his best.

Augie

Augie is a true professional. He came early, was extremely friendly, professional and courteous. This is my first time using this service, but I am going to be doing this for all my major car services for now on. Not only did Augie complete the job in a timely manner, but he knows cars inside and out, which I highly appreciate. He was also extremely clean and tidy, not leaving a mess behind and was extremely careful to make sure no fluids leaked. It's hard to find a good mechanic, and even harder to find a great one. Augie is a great mechanic. He is the gold standard and a class act.

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.
