15 June 2015 Review: YourMechanic.com Recently, I had the opportunity to check out a service that I had, for quite awhile, wondered about and would it fit with the ever-changing consumer worldview. Okay, at least, here in the United States. YourMechanic.com offers to come to you and service your vehicle's needs. While you continue your work day; they continue theirs. When all is done, that's exactly that. They're done with their day, you're done with your day and the day-off your car unexpectedly took is also done. Now, you're back on the road or at least able to head out if there's someplace you have to be. Although this may not be a new service; it is for me. I'm glad I found it, used it and now I can recommend it. The mechanic I met, Peter, came with 35 years of experience, licensed, prepared and engaged. I haven't found that at decades old, established companies anywhere, ever. Perhaps, that old model, along with its particular brand of hassles and drawbacks is becoming obsolete. One thing for sure, it won't be missed by me. In as much as the auto/mechanic industry is not my primary area of expertise, allow the following illustration which draws on my personal background to drive home the point: If YourMechanic.com were to announce an Initial Public Offering (IPO) tomorrow, you bet you'd find me among those first in line positioned to grab up as many shares as possible for a long term "hold." Regards, David Duke, Phoenix, Arizona *Note: Please strike this note from the official review as it is intended for inter-office use only. Please feel free to correct any glaring typos I may have overlooked. I am submitting this with a deadline in mind.

Dan was excellent to work with. I would highly recommend him and I will definitely use him again. He is quite knowledgeable about many types of cars and very willingly answers all questions and offers recommendations when asked. I found him to be very friendly, courteous and dedicated to getting the job done right in a high quality and professional manner. He even checked the air in all the tires and test drove it afterward. An overall first-rate experience with Dan.

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.
