I gota say, I dont see myself ever going back to a shop for services or repair. This was my first experience with YourMechanic and was fortunate to have Chris diagnose and repair my truck. Chris calls to let you know he is on his way. No bad vibes with Chris, he talks to you to explain whats going on and to get more information from you, and then he gets down to work. He made 2-trips, one for the diagnostics and the other for the repair because I requested him for it. Both times he was running early and called to ask if he could swing by and one time I said I couldnt but he was very cool about it and still worked with me on a new time. YourMechanic allows you to request the same or a different mechanic and the absolutely best part of it all is you can provide your own part. Oh and the diagnostic cost was credited to the cost of labor. I know some shops do that, but you're gona pay half with these guys and you cant beat the convenience. Anyways, Chris did a great job with my fuel pump replacement, truck sounds beautiful when it starts man and feels like new. Thank you Chris!

Russell went above and beyond what I thought a mobile mechanic would offer. The starter was a little bit of a struggle but he got it done. Super friendly and just talked to me the whole time. If I ever need another mechanic to help me I will be calling Russell 100%.

Thought I had a starter problem. After a quick test, David got the vehicle started right up. He said he had experience with issues like this and explained about the security switch. I did not know I had one.

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.
