Honorio

Honorio was good and I have no problem with the work he did. I'd use him again as it was super efficient and convenient. My 4 star rating was for a little bit of confusion with the service needed. When booking the appointment, I needed brakes and it asked me if I need from or rear brakes. I have absolutely no idea. I am not a car person, that is why I am hiring a mechanic. I guessed, and apparently guessed wrong, so when Honorio came, he had the wrong parts and couldn't fix my brakes. It was super frustrating as I needed them done quite badly. There should have been an "I don't know" option or something because I don't ubderstand how someone who knows nothing about cars is supposed to know if they need front or rear brakes.

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 Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

The serpentine/drive belt or v-belt is a rubber belt that connects the alternator, power steering, and AC to the part of the engine (crankshaft) which transfers the power from the engine to those components. Without this belt, the battery will not get charged and none of the electrical accessory components in the car will work. The serpentine belt and v-belt are also known as "drive belts." Because of the high amount of heat in the engine, the belt can develop cracks over time and eventually break. If the belt breaks, the steering wheel will be difficult to turn and driving will be hazardous. In some cars, water pumps are driven by the drive belts. If the belt breaks, water and coolant needed to keep the engine cool will not properly flow to the engine. The engine will overheat, potentially causing severe damage.
