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.

All about Water Pump Replacement

The water pump, a container made of aluminum or iron, is part of the cooling system. It contains an impeller (looks like a fan) that circulates water and coolant throughout the cooling system, keeping the engine from overheating. It is located in the engine compartment. For the water pump to work, it needs to turn. This is accomplished either by the drive belt or timing belt/chain. If the water pump is not working, the coolant will not circulate through the cooling system causing the engine to overheat and get severe damages.
