I tried another mobile mechanic service, and that mechanic told me that I had a blown head gasket, and the repairs would run $1,300! Within 20 minutes Ben found the problem and had my vehicle running...all it was is the rotor button screw had come loose and the rotor was not engaging. So $70 vs $1300! Needless to say, I'm a VERY happy camper! So many people today will try to take advantage of seniors, especially if they are on disability. But the honesty and integrity of this company is par excel lance! I would encourage anyone to use this service, instead of going to a shop or trusting shady backyard mechanics!

Richard was courteous, prompt and professional. His diligence and attention to detail in the initial inspection alone gave me the confidence I needed to book immediately for the follow up work that needed to be done on my hoopty. After he serviced my vehicle on the next visit, he took the car out for a drive himself before he let me drive and test it on my own. I have already passed his name and the name of Yourmechanic.com on to a friend. I will definitely keep you guys in mind! Thank you.
Before replacing the pump, first be sure that filters, fuel pickups, fuel pump relays, and electrical connectors are in good working order. A clogged fuel filter, for instance, can restrict flow and cause some of the same symptoms.
Your engine needs gas to run. The gas, however, is stored in the gas tank, not in the engine. When the engine needs more fuel, the fuel pump is responsible for pumping the gas from the tank to the engine, where it is used to power the vehicle. As the fuel pump deteriorates, it will be less and less efficient at pumping gas to the engine, and your vehicle will have a harder time running. When the fuel pump completely dies, it will be unable to pump gas to your engine, and your car won’t run.
