After getting the runaround by several car repair places, I decided to give YourMechanic a try to see what they would diagnosis my check engine light to be. Rocco was my mechanic and he checked my car out explaining what he was doing and showing me the results. I will use Rocco for all repairs on my car. He is knowledgeable, friendly and patient and talks to you like you have a brain and not some dumb girl. He gave me recommendations that I will need in the future and what I would be charged. Very reasonable prices so I will have Rocco preform these services at a later date. For the money and convenience, you can't beat it I highly recommend Rocco for all your car repairs.

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.
