Danny

Had a coolant leak. Needed an engine gasket and thermostat replaced. Also needed a flush of the coolant system and oil change. It was a very long job and Danny was dedicated to getting it done. He also gave me other automotive advice and answered all of my questions thoroughly. The car is no longer overheating or leaking. He did a great job. I would definitely use this service again.

My appointment was scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Kyle called to say he would be about 25 minutes late. He arrived when he said he would. He seemed knowledgeable and was polite and friendly. He quickly came to his conclusion that my old Buick was done and I should look to buy another vehicle. A little too quickly for my liking, but he was not trying to sell me parts or services I did not need. He gave me good advice on how to financially maximize what's left of my old car. My only criticism and it's a small one, is that he did not seem interested in hearing my opinions or comments about what I had done to or replaced on the car. He seemed confident that my vehicle was beyond repair and moving on was my best option. I would use YourMechanic Services Inc. again.

All about Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

The serpentine/drive belt or v-belt is a rubber belt that connects the alternator, power steering, and AC to the part of the engine (crankshaft) which transfers the power from the engine to those components. Without this belt, the battery will not get charged and none of the electrical accessory components in the car will work. The serpentine belt and v-belt are also known as "drive belts." Because of the high amount of heat in the engine, the belt can develop cracks over time and eventually break. If the belt breaks, the steering wheel will be difficult to turn and driving will be hazardous. In some cars, water pumps are driven by the drive belts. If the belt breaks, water and coolant needed to keep the engine cool will not properly flow to the engine. The engine will overheat, potentially causing severe damage.
