Patrick was the mechanic that came out to change my spark plugs and wires and I could not have gotten a better mechanic. It was so nice to have someone who actually took the time to make sure everything was back in the correct place and was running right before he left. I was totally happy with his service.

I was admittedly skeptical - surely the sequel can't be as good as the first one! - but Jeffrey was a joy to have working on my car! He initially inspected my car to correctly determine the problem, and when the quote turned out to be not only reasonable but extremely competitive I didn't waste any time having him come back and replace the starter in my car. With the mechanic being such a nice guy, and the price beating the local, tradition auto repair shop, having him come to me simply sealed the deal! This respectful, knowledgable fellow is now my mechanic, and he should be Your Mechanic, too!

All about Axle/CV Shaft Assembly Replacement

Axle shafts are commonly referred to as “CV axles” or “half-shafts.” An axle shaft is a narrow, pole-like part that connects a wheel to the gears in the transmission. Axles are part of the system that enables the wheels to rotate. One end of the axle shaft is connected to the transmission and the other end is connected to the wheel. The transmission rotates the axle shafts, which rotates the wheels. Without the axles, the tires will not rotate and the car will not move. Axle shafts are comprised of four components: shaft, CV joints, grease and the boots (grease container). The most common reason for the axle to fail is because of the torn boots (grease leaking out). Without the grease, the CV joints will not get lubricated, dirt will enter the joint and the whole axle will eventually wear out.
