Our beater dump-run truck finally succumbed to some rats chewing wires and making nests and it wouldn’t start – we considered just resigning it to the junk heap since it’s at about 200,000 miles but thought we’ have Alika come out and take a look. He quickly diagnosed some problems (several) and was able to get it starting so we could move it to another location that afternoon. Very helpful and reasonable – fraction of what it would have cost to haul it to a shop and leave it. Much appreciated, will be using this service in the future.
He called this morning to confirm the appointment and to say he would call me 30 mins before arriving, which he did. Was on time, started the job right away. Did a vehicle inspection and then begin to see what the problem was. He found out that I had a blown head gasket and wasn't able to fix the issue. Suggested that I take to another mechanic who could further assist me with getting a new engine or double check to see if the head gasket could be repaired. I was very happy. Will call on him again to do work on my other vehicle.
