I made an appt. for Tien to come by and replace the fuel pump for my no start diagnosed by him through the inspection I had a few weeks earlier. Tien got to work on the car immediately on arrival. As in many if not all jobs, it turned out to be a more complicated than expected. In the process of changing the fuel pump, he discovered that the new fuel pump was slightly different than the one being replaced and the wiring would need to be adjusted somehow to be able to use the new one. It was amazing to see as he used his knowlege and experience to make the necessary adjustments to make the part work! He could have taken the "shortcut way" which a lot of mechanics would have done. When he removed the old fuel pump, it seems that only the fuel hose part was damaged beyond repair, but the rest of the unit was intact and probably still working. He could have maybe just changed the hose part and left the rest of the old unit as is, but decided to replace the whole unit if he could, pending the wiring adjustment mentioned above. Thanks Tien for a great job highly recommend you to everyone!

All about Strut Assembly Replacement

The strut assembly, an essential part of your car's suspension system, is attached to the front wheels and is used to absorb road shock, providing a smooth ride. Most cars made after 1995 have shock absorbers in the rear and strut assemblies in the front suspension. Older cars may have shock absorbers at all four wheels. Faulty or damaged struts affect the ride comfort as well as the braking effectiveness. The strut assembly, located in the front or rear of the car, is basically a shock absorber with a spring coil for additional support. The front wheels have the extra weight of the engine and need extra support to absorb shock from the road. The shock absorber has a piston and a cylinder that contains a gas or liquid substance. The spring is attached to the piston. When you drive over a bump, the piston inside the cylinder moves up and down against the gas/fluid and the spring, absorbing the shock from the bump. The strut assembly takes a beating over time, especially on bumpy roads. It will eventually start leaking the gas/liquid, leaving you with an unstable or rugged ride. With worn out struts, it is possible that the tires could lose contact with the road and/or the tires will wear out prematurely.
