Godwin

Godwin did a thorough job inspecting the car and pointed out something important about an airbag light that was on, saying that this could be anywhere from a $10 to a $1000 fix. As a result we are going to pass on this car and keep looking. As far as I am concerned Godwin did exactly what we hoped for in terms of catching issues with the car that could have cost us lots of money to fix if we had purchased it.

Carlos was very well informed about his job and operated and at the same time telling us what he was doing. What we thought the problem was turned out to be totally different and we are very happy with our first time experience at YouMechanic.

All about Starter Replacement

A starter is an electrical motor that is connected to the battery. The job of a starter is to set the engine (pistons, crankshaft, etc.) in motion when you turn the ignition switch on. Once the engine starts and is in motion, the job of starter is done. If the starter goes bad, the engine will not crank properly when you turn the ignition key on or may not crank at all.
