Jamahl
15 years of experience
This was the best interaction I've ever had with a mechanic. Jamahl was on time and communicative through the whole repair process. He diagnosed the issue right away and clearly explained my options and best course of action to get my car up and running. When he came out to do the repair (in the rain!!) he kept me updated the whole time and got the issue resolved. I highly recommend using him as a mechanic and I plan to for any car troubles down the line!

All about Starter Replacement

A starter is an electrical motor that is connected to the battery. The job of a starter is to set the engine (pistons, crankshaft, etc.) in motion when you turn the ignition switch on. Once the engine starts and is in motion, the job of starter is done. If the starter goes bad, the engine will not crank properly when you turn the ignition key on or may not crank at all.
