Ford Explorer - Fuel Filter - Colton, California
Albert is a very good mechanic, on time and always kept me updated on his location as to how far away he was and gave me his ETA. He did all the services I asked of him perfectly, my car runs great! I even got to watch him and he explained each thing he was doing step by step, I felt like I was one of the guys, lol. I highly recommend using mobile mechanic, they're all great and Albert I had twice, my car runs great!!!

Ford Explorer - Loud noises when car is put in gear - San Antonio, Texas
Raymond was on time and professional. He found the problem with my vehicle and actually found a problem that was a more pressing issue. My radiator was leaking and practically empty. Fortunately, it was still under warranty and I have it being repaired as I am typing this review. If Raymond had not pointed out this issue, I probably would have fried my engine.

Cylinder 6 doesn't work on my Ford Explorer
Answered by Eduardo
Hi. A cylinder not working can be caused by several things.

I recommend examining the coil, the injector cable and the number cylinder six to...
