Rod

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!

James

After the initial repair, James found what caused my belt to go faulty in the first place. In a non pushy way he showed me where the problem was and the possible fix for it or I had the option to leave it as it was. I knew it had to be an issue because I had placed coolant in the car days prior and it was already gone out. I'm glad I took his advice and got the water pump replaced before it became a major issue later on.

All about Brake Pad Replacement

Depending on your car’s brake system, it may use between 4 to 8 brake pads. When you step on the brake pedal, the master cylinder sends fluid under pressure to the brake calipers (which hold the brake pads). The caliper presses the brake pad against the brake rotor, causing friction that slows down the car. During normal usage of the brakes, brake pads wear out and become thinner. If the thickness of brake pads is less than 3mm, it is time to change the pads. Depending on where you drive (city driving tends to wear pads out quicker) brake pads usually last between 30,000 to 35,000 miles. Some vehicles (e.g., BMWs) are equipped with a low-pad-warning system. In these vehicles, you will also need to replace the brake sensors as part of the brake pad service.
