Wow, Dave showed up right on time and listened to my electrical issue and did all the diagnosis. He found out that there was no drain on the battery meaning everything was in fine working order.

I will definitely call on Dave for all my car needs. Thank you Dave Sincerely Sherilyn Massaro massarosherilyn@gmail.com

This was my first time using YourMechanic -Allen was early to my appointment - which was great, and I appreciated him calling ahead. Allen was patient and thorough - answering all my questions (I had several lol) quickly identifying a root cause, and providing the estimate. He also did a great inspection on additional issues with my car (not related to my original inquiry) which helped to eliminate any surprises. I decided to book an appointment afterwards for my coolant leak repair - which ended up being a worn out heater core hose.

All about Strut Assembly Replacement

The strut assembly, an essential part of your car's suspension system, is attached to the front wheels and is used to absorb road shock, providing a smooth ride. Most cars made after 1995 have shock absorbers in the rear and strut assemblies in the front suspension. Older cars may have shock absorbers at all four wheels. Faulty or damaged struts affect the ride comfort as well as the braking effectiveness. The strut assembly, located in the front or rear of the car, is basically a shock absorber with a spring coil for additional support. The front wheels have the extra weight of the engine and need extra support to absorb shock from the road. The shock absorber has a piston and a cylinder that contains a gas or liquid substance. The spring is attached to the piston. When you drive over a bump, the piston inside the cylinder moves up and down against the gas/fluid and the spring, absorbing the shock from the bump. The strut assembly takes a beating over time, especially on bumpy roads. It will eventually start leaking the gas/liquid, leaving you with an unstable or rugged ride. With worn out struts, it is possible that the tires could lose contact with the road and/or the tires will wear out prematurely.
