Tien arrived slightly early (which works well for us) for an appointment I set up for my mother's car. Very professional and he did a great job. If needed we would use Tien again!

It was a good experience having Dave arriving on time and was eager to work on the car. He listens to my descriptions of my problem with my car and steps I had taken to pinpoint to the repairs that I needed. He was done replacing the intake manifold gasket and within the time scheduled. I find Dave easy to communicate with. I would call him again if required and would recommend him to my friends and families.......thanks Dave

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.
