Thorough above & beyond pre-purchase inspection, grateful knowing what little work if any should be done on this vehicle. I bought it shortly after & he was exactly correct on the clutch catching high, which is liveable until I can pay to fix that, then I think I have a perfect used car to maintain for many years, I watched my friend get a used vehicle lasat year & end up paying $2000 more for a transmission that fell apart & a smog system that was rigged to fail after the owner sold it. That won't happen to me because of the services from this company. My parents & boyfriend are going to use the service too when they get their next cars, who can afford a lemon? Thanks!!!!

Ben is awesome. He was on time for my appointment. Very courteous and professional. I showed him the parts that I purchased and he started working on it right away. He finished right at the estimated time, documented, and left for his next job. I'd definitely hire Ben again.

Answered by David
Hi there - the rough running (https://www.yourmechanic.com/question/car-runs-rough) you describe could be anything from bad gas (water content), failing ignition components, or a fuel system problem (low fuel pressure, clogged or leaking injectors,etc.). The first task is to extract problem codes...

Trusted by thousands of happy car owners



I can't say enough about how pleased I am that I found YourMechanic and Raul. I'm from out of town and didn't know who to contact to fix a truck I was borrowing. I searched the web and found YourMechanic.....thank goodness. I found Raul to be professional, an outstanding mechanic and the price was more than fair.



Tim was great; offered advice instead of just blindly fixing. Also Tim was super friendly and very genuine. Highly recommend!



Paul did a good job fixing my car quickly. He also got a accurate diagnostic of my car's isues.
