I was in the middle of replacing the starter to my 97 VW Jetta all on my own, and the end was in sight. I had successfully taken the starter out, so I just needed to reverse my steps and install the new one. Little did I know, that the hole for the top 8" bolt was slightly misaligned (no wonder it took a bit of tugging and pulling to take out) and getting it back in was near impossible. Since it was so long, it went through the starter, transmission chassis, and then into a motor mount chassis. I tried to raise the motor via various jack points along the engine/transmission, but nothing would allow me to get the bolt back in. I was pretty frustrated and at my wits end. Enter Grzegorz. Grzegorz arrived on the scene and instantly started loosening all the motor mount bolts that held the entire motor/transmission in place. He was even able to loosen one of the motor mounts that I was unable to, as well as quickly locate 2 other motor mounts to loosen as well. Once that was done, I helped him slowly jack up the transmission as he was looking down the bolt shaft w/ his mirror. After he told me to stop, he was able to insert the bolt problem free. Everything after that was downhill and a piece of cake. I was extremely impressed with Grzegorz's knowledge of cars, specifically what motor mount bolts needed to be loosened, as well as his wide array of tools that he had at his disposal. He had a special ratchet or wrench for every occasion, and knew how to use them as well. His services are perfect if you're a big DIY guy like I am, and end up finding yourself in a tight spot. Sometimes walk-throughs and online car forums can only get you so far. To get you the rest of the way, you need a mechanic like Grzegorz from YourMechanic.

Blake did a great job and explained many things to me since I at one time intended to do the work myself. He had unique solutions to certain problems such as an over tight axle bolt and was even willing to try minor suggestions when things didn't go a certain way. I was impressed by his enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and focus from start to successful test drive. Overall, because of Blake I found the YourMechanic.com experience very positive and will recommend the service to my friends. It saved me significant money from dealer and independent bids and it was quality work.

All about Differential/Gear Oil Replacement

Differential oil is a type of oil. Cars have a gearbox connecting the two axles. This gearbox is responsible for the conversion of engine power and its transmission to the wheels, allowing them to turn at varying speeds. This part of the car is called the differential, and lubrication is needed for it to function properly. Differential fluid, also called differential oil, provides the lubrication and cooling of the car’s differential. The fluid is there to protect the gears’ metal surfaces from friction, and to prevent overheating and burning.
