We will definitely use Jose by request in the future. He was very professional and efficient. He came from beaverton and changed my oil in my GMC truck and serviced my Differential, then travelled all the way back to beaverton again, then came back and changed my wife's Volvo XC90 oil within three hours. Then they told him he had another oil change back in beaverton AGAIN!!! He never complained. I would've told them to "kiss my a--"! THANK YOU JOSE.

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.
