I am so happy about my experience with yourmechanic.com. Casey was very knowledgeable, communicative, and professional. The cost of the work done was much lower than what I had been quoted at the repair shop. One thing I especially liked about Casey, was that he seemed real about what needed to be done ASAP and what I could work on at a later date. With other places, I feel like they word things in an alarming matter to try and get me to do it all at once, which I'm just not able to afford. I hope I have more experiences like this, as I will be booking all of my work through yourmechanic.com from now on! Thank you!

It was 9AM appointment at Sunday Morning, as oil change was about 2k miles overdue. I need to use my car a few hours later. He gave me on my cell at 8:53AM from my drive way. That is the 1st pleasant surprise. On time service! He said it would take 1 hour or so to change engine oil and rotate tires. Then, at the end of service, he showed me a few of pictures he took, while he worked on my car to give me an overall condition. While I was having a discussion with him for a few of potential problem areas, I liked a way he talk and is doing a business with me. He is a straight talk person. He mentioned to me this and this would not need a repair service now. However, that one needs to be done. I know my car and have been worked on my trustworthy car many years for many parts. He won't try to sell for everything, but only sell what I do need. I agreed his points. I appreciate his honesty and expertise. If I come back again to get service through this yourmechanics.com, I would choose him, definitely. Oh... He may be work only over a weekend, as he works weekday job at other places. If you need to grep him, go ahead to get a service from him for weekend, until he put more hours into weekday service call. Good job Pete!

All about Spark Plug Replacement

The spark plugs are an important part of the ignition system. When you turn the ignition key (car's key) on, it causes the ignition coil to generate the spark which ignites the air-fuel mixture in the engine cylinders to start the engine. The number of spark plugs in the car is the same as the number of cylinders, although some vehicle manufacturers will use two spark plugs per cylinder. Over time, the spark plugs wear out and require replacement. When the spark plugs wear out, it is harder for it the air-fuel mixture to ignite, resulting in engine misfires. If one of the spark plugs has failed, the car will still start and run, but it will run poorly. On some vehicles, spark plug replacement may be labor intensive and involve removal of the intake plenum.
