Jose
12 years of experience
Jose was able to determine that my Blazer's issue WAS related to my engine [as my original mechanic suspected]. That means that the initial mechanic, whom I scheduled through "Your Mechanic," misdiagnosed. He insisted it was the A/C compressor, leaving me hopeful [and paying for a second inspection for work that won't be economical for me to complete]. Jose examined my Blazer like a medical clinician would examine a person. He checked various areas under the hood, using a tool to listen & feel with, while the engine was running. He also had me do the same, so I could understand how he was able to quickly rule out where the problem WASN'T coming from. He determined it was coming from the back of the engine [what I was afraid of, from the start]. So, basically, the first inspection was a bust....which didn't leave me with much confidence in my pre-purchase inspection of the Subaru, done by the same mechanic. It's a shame, because I found him likable and he seemed honest. But I don't feel encouraged to use him again. Additionally, in discussing my friend's Subaru, that I am currently driving, I learned, from Jose, that the timing belt should be given a greater priority status than either of us were giving it. I will have to check with my friend, to be certain; but I will likely want to schedule maintenance with Jose soon. I work nights, but I could schedule in the morning....better yet, on a Thursday or Friday. But, again, I will wait have to wait for approval from the car's true owner [even though I was intending to pay for it, myself].

Robert

Robert is my new, personal mechanic and I couldn't be happier. My first experience with YourMechanic was this week when I had a huge water pump leak and the mechanic I had used in the past wasn't available. After discovering their website and reading several positive reviews--utilizing YourMechanic seemed like a no brainer. I scheduled my appointment for Tuesday afternoon and I received texts and emails when Robert was on his way and when he arrived. It awesome not having to leave the house to get my car worked on. Robert was prompt, courteous and a true professional. I can tell Robert is very detail oriented and takes great pride in his work. He offered to let me watch and answered all my questions. After he changed the water pump and tuned up my 2000 Suburban it runs like brand new. He also did a detailed review of my entire car and made suggestions on what I should keep an eye on. My overall experience with YourMechanic and Robert in particular was outstanding. I have already started to spread the word to several friends.

Very friendly! Completely inspected my car and knew what was wrong with it, as well as recommending services that would need to be done soon which is always nice to know, because most mechanics won't look at anything other than the actual problem.

All about Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement

A Drive Belt Tensioner is a pulley mounted to either a spring mechanism or to an adjustable pivot point that is used to keep constant tension on your serpentine belt. That is the big long belt in the front of your engine. The tensioner rides on the outside surface of the belt to put pressure, or tension, on the belt and against the pulleys that drive things like the alternator, power steering, air conditioner, etc.
