Casey

A true test for mechanics are having extensive knowledge about fixing your own car. Casey was straightforward about how much time it would take to fix my pcv valve on my Volvo and I completely agree with him since I have replaced several Volvo pcv valves and it takes me about an hoiur longer than him. No tricks/gimmicks.

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.
