Blake did a great job and explained many things to me since I at one time intended to do the work myself. He had unique solutions to certain problems such as an over tight axle bolt and was even willing to try minor suggestions when things didn't go a certain way. I was impressed by his enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and focus from start to successful test drive. Overall, because of Blake I found the YourMechanic.com experience very positive and will recommend the service to my friends. It saved me significant money from dealer and independent bids and it was quality work.

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.
