Andy did a great job. Was prompt and actually called and offered to come earlier which I appreciated. I had my car diagnosed at Burnett Automotive but their quote was very expensive Andy quickly diagnosed the problem which was NOT what Burnett said it would be. Andy saved me unnecessary work on my car. I will definitely use Andy and yourmechanic.com in the future!

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.
