Robert was quick to diagnose that the changes recommended by the VW dealer was ALL not necessary. He figured out the needed changes and worked with me to order the parts. Even though this took 3 trips to get the right parts (the company was supposed to procure parts which was not done correctly & no fault of Robert), he was finally able to procure the right one and do the work to set it up. Recommend Robert for your car issues if you want to have just the right work done, rather than taking to the dealers, who seem to suggest unnecessary stuff.

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.
