First time using YourMechanic.com and it was a good experience. I will definitely think about using them again. If I do, I hope to get Jon again. He was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. He installed my new struts (I supplied the parts - front and rear) in under two hours! He was late but he called ahead of time to inform me that he was scheduled in Apache Junction at 7am and then Surprise at 9am - we all know that drive is extremely long. No fault of his. The folks who schedule should have known this but nonetheless, he arrived and got to work and was done before 11am!

Matthew is a true professional. It was like having a personal mechanic. I wasn't sure where the issue was regarding my brakes (front/back, pads or rotors). Matthew walked me through potential issues and told me he would only do the work required. He found the issue and identified a major safety concern with my brakes. He allowed me to see for myself what the problem was and described exactly how the work would be done. It was reassuring knowing that I could get a professional mechanic that can solve my brake problem at my convenience and at my home. I would more than likely use Your Mechanic for my auto service and definitely request Matthew as my auto professional.

All about Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

The serpentine/drive belt or v-belt is a rubber belt that connects the alternator, power steering, and AC to the part of the engine (crankshaft) which transfers the power from the engine to those components. Without this belt, the battery will not get charged and none of the electrical accessory components in the car will work. The serpentine belt and v-belt are also known as "drive belts." Because of the high amount of heat in the engine, the belt can develop cracks over time and eventually break. If the belt breaks, the steering wheel will be difficult to turn and driving will be hazardous. In some cars, water pumps are driven by the drive belts. If the belt breaks, water and coolant needed to keep the engine cool will not properly flow to the engine. The engine will overheat, potentially causing severe damage.
