Robert showed up for the 4 p.m. appointment today to look at my 2004 Volvo XC90. He was courteous, and tried his best to evaluate the problem. A foreign vehicle is very hard to disagnose, and I believe that after my experience with both Robert and another car mechanic at a different shop (who looked at the Volvo as well and did not charge us for diagnoses, since he could not figure out the problem) that it takes a Volvo specialist to evalute and to accurately diagnize the problem with this vehicle. Robert made a couple of guesses, however, he did not know exactly what the problem was. He told me that the car needed to be placed on a jack high in the air to completely diagnose the problem. He said I needed to take the car to a Kaufman tire to get a complete diagnoses while the car was on a jack high up in the air. He told me it would take 2 people to diagnose the problem. Robert tried his best, however your company did not have the resouses & equipment to accurately diagnose the problem (jack lift) according to Robert. Also Robert said it would take two people to diagnose the problem as well. I am going to take the Volvo to someone who works with Volvo's to accuratley diagnose the problem. I am confident that you will refund the $70 charge that you charged my credit card since Robert told me he was not able to accuretly diagnose the problem. Thank you. Rich Whitmer 404-379-1625

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.
