Previous repair was not done properly. I feel I should be reimbursed for that especially since after the "repair" I now have more problems with the car. I have no problem with Mr. Pryke.

Patrick did a great job he is a very well qualified mechanic. And he is most pleasant to work with very courteous and helpful. We had one oxygen sensor that the GM company sent us that was the wrong plug and part. Patrick noticed it right way and I had to reschedule him to come back when I receive the replacement.

I have an older muscle car that had a bad alternator and a fried battery, and rather go throught the hassle of calling a tow company,that always complains that my car is too low to put on the flatbed,I decided to check the internet for mobile service,and after finding Your Mechanic, was happy to see that Mr Rod was available in my area. After reading all his reviews,I was leary that someone could be that good! Rod arrived earlier than the scheduled time, had all my needed work done in the most professional and timely matter possible.Rod even went with me to the auto parts store to make sure that I had a proper battery exchange. I now understand all the rave reviews that Rod had received before. I am now very proud to be a member of the Rod Fan Club!

All about Oxygen Sensor Replacement

With each new model year, manufacturers are adding more oxygen sensors to better manage engine operation. Some high performance engines have an oxygen sensor for each cylinder as well as one for the rear of each catalytic convertor. The sensors are located either underneath the hood or underneath the car. The oxygen sensors are connected (screwed) to the exhaust pipe, either in front or back of the catalytic converter. The front (upstream) sensors measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system. The purpose of the front oxygen sensor(s) is to measure how rich or lean the gases are as the gases exit the combustion chamber. Depending upon whether the exhaust gas is lean (high in oxygen content) or rich (low in oxygen content), the amount of fuel entering the engine is adjusted by the engine management computer to try and maintain an ideal mixture that produces the lowest emissions output from the catalytic convertor. Rear (downstream) sensors are located behind the catalytic converter. The purpose of the rear oxygen sensor(s) is to monitor the oxygen content of the exhaust gases leaving the catalytic convertor. If one or more of the oxygen sensors are faulty, your car may not pass the emissions test. If you drive your car with a faulty oxygen sensor, you may get poor gas mileage and it can damage the catalytic converter.
