Patrick was early and contacted me so I would know he was here. He was very patient and understanding when I had to run back to the store and exchange the parts. Autozone gave me the wrong roadie. Patrick noticed it and I had to leave to exchange the parts. While I was gone he submitted a quote for other items I need work done. We had chatted while he was getting started about doing non-engine related work. I told him about the areas I needed fixed and he put in the quote so I could see if and when I court get this work done.

I like to work on my own cars. I have a Jeep Wrangler and doing a clutch job myself. When it got time to drop the transmission, and transfer case, I was having a bit of a hard time doing myself, not to mention that I didn't have all the bolts taken out of the bell housing. When Robert showed up, he knew exactly which bolts were still in, and what size the bolts were. He finished unbolting the bell housing, showed me how to strap the transmission down to the floor jack, and dropped the entire unit in no time. Robert is a transmission/clutch expert!! With over 20 years experience! I was charged 1 hour of time = 75.00 which is extremely reasonable!! I will definitely specifically ask for Robert to help me get the transmission aligned and back in. What a great service for the guy who likes to work on his own vehicles, but need a little help from a true mechanic. Thanks Robert!!

he was prompt, pleasant to deal with and very thorough. Drove tested vehicle before release and gave me approximations on remaining brake pads without asking. Excellent work.

All about Radiator Replacement

The radiator performs a critical function; it keeps the engine from overheating. While running, the engine produces heat. Coolant flowing through the system absorbs and removes extra heat from the engine. The coolant then passes through the radiator where it cools off and is later circulated back to the engine to absorb heat again. A radiator has two tanks that are connected to each other through aluminum or brass tubes. When the coolant passes through these tubes, the radiator cooling fan blows air across the radiator to lower the temperature of the coolant. The tank is usually made of plastic, and it is common for it to crack and start leaking coolant. If the tank or the tubes crack, coolant will leak , the vehicle will overheat and could cause severe engine damage. Radiators also tend to clog over time. When this occurs, not enough coolant flows through the radiator leading to heat build-up, causing the engine to overheat.
