I’ve had my valve cover gasket replaced, brake pads & rotors replaced and 100k maintenance. Rusty is friendly, professional, reliable and very knowledgeable. Although I am sure Your Mechanic has lots of great mechanics, I don’t want to use anyone else but Rusty!!!!

I was told the mechanic was a BMW mechanic. All he did was diagnose the problem but was unable to fix because of his lack of experience. This was a waste of our money and we are not happy. We could have gone any place and had code read for less. I was told he was a familiar and capable of repairing BMW cars but he wasnt. I specifically asked for a mechanic that worked on BMW. Our money was wasted. Read my comments on yelp, reddit and other social network sites.

All about Radiator Replacement

The radiator performs a critical function; it keeps the engine from overheating. While running, the engine produces heat. Coolant flowing through the system absorbs and removes extra heat from the engine. The coolant then passes through the radiator where it cools off and is later circulated back to the engine to absorb heat again. A radiator has two tanks that are connected to each other through aluminum or brass tubes. When the coolant passes through these tubes, the radiator cooling fan blows air across the radiator to lower the temperature of the coolant. The tank is usually made of plastic, and it is common for it to crack and start leaking coolant. If the tank or the tubes crack, coolant will leak , the vehicle will overheat and could cause severe engine damage. Radiators also tend to clog over time. When this occurs, not enough coolant flows through the radiator leading to heat build-up, causing the engine to overheat.
