The Volvo Dealer quoted me $2250 to replace the clutch on my 2000 Volvo C70 (based on an hourly labor cost of $165 per hour!). Even after spending $160 to tow my car from the Volvo dealer to a location where YourMechanic could work on the car, I saved about $600! -The service was fast and professional. -The mechanic (Grzegorz) was friendly, knowledgeable, and even showed me the specific damaged parts that were replaced and explained the problem. - The mechanic (Grzegorz) worked part of the weekend so I could pick up my car on Sunday when it was more convenient. - I can't imagine why I would ever pay a massive premium at the Volvo dealer ever again - I've wasted so much money at that place over the 13 years I owned my car! - Initially I was a little cautious about using this service I found searching online, but I'm so glad that I took the chance and gave it a try. - I will definitely use yourmechanic.com again and have already recommended it to some of my colleagues at 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.
