Joshua

Joshua arrived early to my appointment to fix the starter in my car, a very welcome sight on a rainy Friday night. After checking the symptoms, he quickly realized what I was told was a starter problem by AAA, was actually a connection problem instead. Not only did he understand the underlying problem, he promptly cleaned the connection and saved me almost $200.00. A+ mechanic and I would recommend YourMechanic to anyone. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Robert was great at communicating time of arrival and making sure I fully understood what was wrong with my car. Robert also checked other car components other than what he was there to check. He is great and I would highly recommend him as the guy to go to.

Lucas

Lucas was unable to determine our engine problem, but that was because it was complicated and would have required more investigation than he was able to do in our driveway, but he did do a thorough and professional job checking out everything that he was able to check out. He was good at explaining things to us, and although he could not help with our situation, we were grateful that he came.

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.
