I absolutely love the value that Your Mechanic service brought to the process of hiring a mechanic. It's a comforting feeling to have someone come to my house to do some fixes rather than drop it off at someone else's property for them to potentially hold it for ransom. I could see exactly what the mechanic was doing, He communicated with me what was going on the whole time and really wasn't afraid of having me around asking questions. I learned a lot and thought that was worth more than the actual repair job. So, not only was my mechanic on time, courteous and competent; he was thorough in his assessment and patient with me.

Good service - he was able to determine the cause of the noise on the steering column. He was unable to fix it on the spot since replacing the part required shop tools for precision.

All about Car 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.
